With only three days left of the season, I had to get my final fair burger! Got there early enough (4:00pm) so the line was only five cars deep. By the time I left there were at least 10 behind me! This is the best...More

We've been going to Van's since it opened in 1999. The meat is fresh, never frozen. The left over meat, at the end of a day, gets well cooked. If you have a pooch in the car, ask for a "puppy paddy", it's free with...More
