Ditto on the hash browns, I get them instead of fries with any sandwich. The burger is a testament to just using a good quality mix in the patty and cooking it properly. A modest restaurant--don't take anyone you want to impress with ambience--but the food is uniformly great quality and always cooked properly. I live 15 miles away so... More

Unfortunately this type of diner doesn't warrant a $10 lunch without a drink. The food is good but inconsistent. I'm sure the current economy is affecting them but probably raising the prices will not be beneficial in the long run.

all food is good. great burgers with the works. not fast food at all. Breakfast is as good as it gets in Los Al. All at a fair price. If you can handle it the milk shakes are the old fashioned home made right in front of you. Be wild and go with the malt.

The ground beef tacos are my lunch favorite, but I come back again and again for their great breakfast fare. This is a casual restaurant, large portions and terrific value.

I just read the other review and it was EXACtLY what I was going to say! My husband and I had burgers here. They were GREAT! We knew we had tasted thes unique burgers before. We finally got it. The burgers and the hash browns (order them cooked all of the way thru) were familiar and great. Finally we figured... More
