This place is a Clifton Landmark. It has great hot dogs and burgers all the way. The fries and onion rings are always hot and crispy.

Cash only. Very busy fast and upbeat. No line. So it seems chaotic but it works well. Food is fresh and fast. Cheap reasonable prices. Definitely a place to stop at.

This is the place to go. One all the way, frenchy with gravy and a soda. That's all you need to know or say in order to have a classic meal.

The best fast food in the area, they also have a special for summer bbq which comes frozen and you just have to toss it in the grill. Once in a while you could eat here but not everyday.
