Been around since the dawn of time! Real home-made burgers...just like the ones grandma used to make!

Not the same as it once was. Fries are still good but had way better hot dogs and hamburgers else where. Best hot dogs are still at Blondies and skinners.

Lots of people rave about this place. But I just didn't enjoy the food that much. I don't know if it was an off day or what, but I didn't even want to finish the fries. I just don't see the appeal.

Truly a little hole in the wall drive in or walk up, but great burgers and fries. Hand made, fried on a big grill and made how you like it. Bring an appetite, two hands to hold on, and lots of napkins. Definitely a great little spot. Price is great too.

Gave this place a whirl and the burger was very filling and delicious!!!! Only thing that bothered me was their attitude when I had the nerve to ask for fried onions. Otherwise can't complain.

When I'm craving a Greek style burger, burgers with a special beef chili sauce, this is the first place that comes to mind. They make my favourite Greek Style Burgers. The hamburger mixture is flavourful. If you want a simple flavoured burger, you might as well go to Mc Donalds or Wendy's. The pickles on these burgers have just the... More

Nothing fancy about this place... much the same in appearance as its been for years. But so is the food... amazingly scrumptious burgers with that tangy sauce. You either like this type of burger or you don't. Fries are homemade.. you salt em and vinegar them up... have to decide if you want them in a bag or box. Staff... More
