Straight from the 50s. They run out to your car to take your order (unless you already called it in, which is even better). Our son loves the Galley Boy, a double cheeseburger with special sauce. We love the Salad Boy, a great veggie burger. And the fries are excellent - best to eat nice and hot.

The waiters run from place to place. They never walk, even when delivering food to waiting cars. I am sorry but I was not as impressed with the food as others. As soon as I drove up the waiter was at the car door. This was super quick but I waited a full 20 minutes for my order. I understand cooked to order but geez it was just a burger and fries. I got tired just watching the guys sprint about. They looked very nice in their crisp uniforms. I saw no female wait staff. My fries were good but just warm. I got a nice packet with napkins, salt, pepper, a straw, a fork for the coleslaw and ONE packet of ketchup. I was alone and felt safe enough but I would never visit in the evening. I did not appreciate drivers on both sides of me smoking and holding the cigarettes outside their cars. Will I go again ?? Maybe The burger was good and I liked the large variety of shakes. The shakes were thick and wonderful. I made up my own flavor hot fudge malt with pineapples. The malt and pineapples were extra but well worth it. I would suggest you look at the menu online before you go and have an idea of what you want before you get there. It sure helped me. Enjoy the experience.
