The easily accommodated our large group (17) and the food was fresh and tasted great. Be sure to save room for a shake. They are large enough to share.

We met some family for lunch. The service was very good and most of the food was good. I had a cheeseburger with house made chips. The burger was good, but chips were bad!! They were cold and greasy!! Sure they were not prepared at same as the meal. The other food items were as expected. Also, they had a... More

Burger was great. Fried pickles were awesome. The peppers and onions in the Philly could have been cooked longer. Service was excellant. We sat outside as the weather was perfect. Had a purple milkshake for my birthday before leaving with the added Halloween toppings. Was awesome.

We stopped in for lunch one weekend day. It looked and felt like an old fashioned "Malt Shop" . The burgers were not very good and the chocolate malt I got was HORRIBLE! Too sweet and an over load of chocolate flavor made it nasty. There are only two times in my life that I didn't drink my malted and... More

They have some very good food. Had hamburger with cheese and also a Purple Cow milkshake. If you have never seen a purple milkshake then this is the place to go. Very reasonable prices and the hamburgers taste like the old timers. Very Good.

On our way out of town to head home we wanted a place to grab a burger and maybe some ice cream so we decided to check this place out. The atmosphere was fun and the food was pretty good. Service was decent. We ordered ice cream after the meal and it was excellent! The Elvis Shake was outstanding!

We went here for dinner on a Wednesday evening. We were greeted very kindly and the server was happy to answer any questions we had. My husband ordered the Razorback burger (basically a bacon cheeseburger with pulled pork on top) and I had the rodeo burger and substituted sweet potato fries. The music and atmosphere was great for a family... More

It was a beautiful evening with low humidity & pleasant temperature so we dined outside on the patio. The inside is equally inviting with an 1950's style retro interior design, music, and cute purple cows in showcases. There is even a soda counter with old fashioned malts, milk shakes, and ice cream treats. The menu offers a variety of burgers,... More
