Let’s be clear, this is a drive-in burger joint, but that isn’t a bad thing. The waitress was at our window within seconds of our car pulling up. We all had breakfast burritos, and they were magnificent. Cheap, too. Don’t expect atmosphere or coziness: this...More

The place was very busy and yet the service was prompt. The burgers and fries were good. When I sam a shake get delivered to another car I had wished I tried one of those. I'd stop again if in the area.

Every time I stop there the servers are friendly and fast and great food, reasonable in price! It’s hard sometimes to find a parking spot because they have a great reputation in this town for good service and food!

We were hoping for a great chocolate malt and boy, we got one. They were not stingy with the chocolate or the malt. YUM!
