Last night was frigid with an artic blast! Saw Hot Vegetable beef soup on the sign! A bowl of soup and a BLT is just what the cold air ordered! Always enjoy taking the family to Kessels. It gives them a feel of an old...More

One word = MILKSHAKE. Rest of menu is simple & straightforward. Hot & cold sandwiches fresh salads & ice cream. Homemade sweet tea is refreshing. Family owned business that is clean & efficient. Perfect for families with small children and seniors (no stairs).

French fries good. Iceberg lettuce in sandwiches a downer. Chicken salad huge, but no extras in it (celery, pickles, grapes?) Eight-ten waitresses, but spend more time chatting than serving. But lots of energy in the cheerful room.
