Absolutely the best hamburger in town. Just remember cash only unless you do it online then you can use PayPal and skip the line. Just go straight to the register and say name.

Always good stop for a great burger or Reuben, fries, pretty much anything grilled!!!! They have a nice Greek salad , although it’s mostly iceberg, not what I usually eat, somehow it’s syill really enjoyable! A local experience and tradition for many people!
