The place is crowded on weekends. Their hamburgers are very good. Been there several times an are always consistently very good. Would not try other type of food, though they have other dishes. Good place if you are with kids: they will give them balloons and those sorts of things.

Still good food and service after so many years (founded in the early 60's). Nothing fancy, just an American retro style restaurant / fast food. Their burgers are huge and fries are crisp and tender. My family loved the flavor / taste of the "bife de chorizo" with nothing more than salt on it.
