They have been here forever and still standing with regulars each week. Their burgers are from fresh daily local burger. Have drinks available also. Rustic interior with original wood floors, and an outside patio also. Very reliable good food every visit.

The place is dark, so no idea if it is clean. We had heard about their ham sandwich so big you needed to split it so thats what we ordered. Seriously, there were 2 paper thin slices. We ordered a cup of chili each and were served chili in those little paper ketchup dips! Never ever will we go inside... More
