I sauntered in after a long day at school. The white wallpaper, yarn art, and people to cheer me up. I heard grease sizzling on the grill, and I smelt the burgers and fries. People said “Hi” as I went by. The no T.V. atmosphere...More

Wonderful service with knowledgeable staff. Lots of great burger choices on the menu (get the fried onions on your burger). Huge serving of fries. Everything is piping hot. We want to return for breakfast to try the fritter French toast.

Went here after it was recommended .... Potatoes where fresh, eggs were fluffy....not a speck of flavor anywhere in site. Absolutely void of any salt, any season, any flavor at all. Coffee was worse... So weak it was like coffee flavored tea water. Maybe they...More

This is the best kept secret in Duluth. We all had burgers - from a simple cheeseburger to the BBQ Bacon to the Big Daddy! All were awesome! You can get a huge double cheeseburger (1/2 pound) with bacon, mushrooms, etc with a mountain of...More
