Cheeseburger with the works & Fries $8.65 Pickles and grilled onions optional Super sized "in & out" burger flavor if you've ever had one of those. Not bad, but not gourmet.

We were hungry for pies and this fit the bill! The banana creme pie was excellent and the pecan wasn't bad either. Would of thought they made them there but they don't... Still very yummy!

This is a very basic burger with no frills, cooked on a flat top, and delivered with lettuce, tomato, onion, american cheese and way too much mayo (IMHO) on a soft bun. If this burger were a color, it would be Beige. Images of Belushi and Akroyd's SNL Olympia Diner come to mind, "Chee-burgee, Chee-burgee, Chee-burgee...no Coke - Pepsi!" No... More

Great for late night (open all night) munchies, huge cheeseburgers with grilled onions, 3 egger breakfasts with all the fixin's, but leave room for pie! I'm picking up 2 tomorrow morning for Thanksgiving.

We had a tasty lunch of Cheeseburgers and fries at Nations. The restaurant was clean, the service was friendly and the food was very good. Only complaint is that we were to full to have a piece of pie!

I'm a vegetarian and their veggie burgers and salmon patties are always messy and tasty, the way a burger should be. I don't think they make them on a separate grill from all the meats, but I've noticed they are sometimes grilled on the same side as the eggs.

The burgers are huge and you can get them made just the way you want them. Personally, I like light lettuce and dressing, with pickles. If you like crispy fries you just need to ask. there is not table service. You order and pickup and there are self-serve drinks. This business helps with job training for the unemployed.
