Great meal with sweet potato fries. Outside seating when weather permits. Great "flat top" burger. Interior seating area kind of small. Service was good.

We order from here a lot for work meetings. With delish burgers and hotdogs combinations it's hard to decide. I always get the Carolina dog, with chili, slaw, mustard and grilled onions. The onion rings are sinful, with just the right amount of salt and...More
