We eat here at least once a month! We do carry out, never ate in. 1/2 pound burger is the best! Tastes homemade right off the grill! The broccoli cheese tots are amazing and the stuffed jeaopenos are great too. Can't best the prices!!!

We were going to be in the area, so I searched out a restaurant online and found this place. There were two adults and three teens... we all agreed these were the best burgers we have ever eaten.

First visit to this restaurant passing through Alton on way to son's baseball game. Called ahead for takeout. Ordered 1/2 pound burger for myself and catfish sandwich for my wife.

I have been going to this place for years and the food and service is great! I advise doing carry out because the place is a bit too small to eat inside. They have every thing you can think of... The broccoli tots are the best.

Food is good and cooked when you order and on a real grill. Best to call ahead and order - don't forget a gallon of root beer. Not a lot of seating, but worth it.

Mini corral has the best hamburgers, but its menu features so much more, GREAT FOOD allaround, The Best ROOTBEER ever....its a small place, just a MINI corral but well worth the stop if you need lunch or a steak, the Porterhouse deal here is awesome. Sal and company have a Jewel of a local restaurant, BEST PLACE FOR LUNCH

Outstanding menu, and an owner operator with a perpetual smile (not to mention the Worlds Greatest Root Beer), make this place (with an unfortunately tiny dining area) a local jewel.
