Work lunch and our normal go-to in Minden was closed so drove here for lunch. Good 50's vibe, good service (thanks Lisa) and two great burgers. Six ounce home made beef burgers with fries and two drinks all for under $30! We will be back!!

Busy spot that delivered a great quick, very cheap breakfast. BLT and home fries plus a kids breakfast for just $15. All hot and good.
