Great place for good hamburgers, cheeseburgers, etc. Eric will cut up with you and make your day. Food tastes great. Eric is open for breakfast and lunch. Closes around 2 PM.

Burgers are usually cold. I have eaten there before when the burger wasn't cook. Owner screams at the staff with the place packed with customers. Not nice

The staff is friendly and courteous and the food arrived quickly. You don't get a plate...but that's ok, the paper wrapper works. Drinks are serve youself which is fine too. The prices are VERY reasonable. The food lacks flavor.
