Drive into outdoor parking area...a waiter/waitress will come out your car to take your order! Ok quick burgers, fries and other quick fares. Friendly servers! Try their great shakes!

Stopped in for something cold with my daughter. Yummie shakes and slushies. Need to come back with my appetite and try one of the hotdogs.
