Would Eat Here Again

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Fort Walton Beach from Atlanta. Huge menu selection and friendly, efficient (if somewhat overbearing) service. I had a very fresh entree salad, and my husband said he had the best fried chicken sandwich he's ever had...and that's saying something! Very busy... read more

Stopped by on recommendation of friend that had attended Auburn years ago. Big selection and inexpensive. Burger was ok. Better than the fast food chains, but not much more. Seating on outdoor deck is a plus in good weather.

It was just OK. Food is run of the mill. Fried rules and is a little greasy. Rueben sandwich is good but no wow factor. Fairly clean and the servers are hit and miss. Very popular place and maybe I have missed something in 4 visits. OK for a quick lunch.

We went there on a recommendation form a local college student. At first glance, you can tell it is good place for Cleve students and the atmosphere was good. But the server was slow and he had no idea what beers they carried other than the four domestics. He sent us to the bar to look them over and they... More

I have been here multiple times. The menu is large that suits everyone's needs - fried, healthy, Mexican, American. Meat lover or Vegetarian, lots of options. You name it, they have it and it is all good! The service has also been great, every single time. Although this last time, they did forget to bring a drink, once the error... More

Food is great with lots of burger and sandwich options for even the pickiest eater. Price is extremely reasonable for the quality of food and service. Nice place to relax and watch a game and enjoy a cold beverage. Outdoor seating for when the weather is agreeable. Drink specials most days of the week, trivia Monday, kids deal Tuesday.

. Great burger joint with character (lots of links to AUBURN). Saw lots of students, all drinking sweet tea. Great value- paid about $17 for two, including drinks and tips. Super friendly waitress.
