Cheap place, cheap service, cheap prices...very simple menu. Always crowded. Historic place. Nice variety of burgers, which are very good. Just two choices of sides: fries and onion rings. Come as you are.

The simplicity of this restaurant is what makes you have a nice time with friends or alone. It has a nice atmosphere. The burgers are just so good. My favorite at all times is the aged blue cheese burger with bacon. The price for a meal there is more than perfect for the area.
