This place has been around so long and we are so happy it still is operating. Whether you want a burger and fries or just a cone or shake it is all good. Now they are making fresh potato chips....oh, my, you have got to try them as they are wonderful.

The burgers are good, but not at that price. We paid $24 and some odd cents for 2 plain burgers (no cheese), 2 orders of French fries, 2 small malts......to me that is high priced fast food eating!!

Excellent sandwiches...really good fast food. Like the freshness of the items and the fast service. At busy times not enough tables but that is no problem.

Slow slow slow service. Average burger, fair fries, you can sit outside under canvas covers. Prices are okay. It is not fast food.

We stopped here when were heading to Durango. It is a roadside hamburger and shake stand. We all had shakes but did not try the food. The shakes were good and were made quickly. The closest restrooms are in the park next door. We would stop here again.

The malt shop is one of those small town roadside gems. They serve great malts and shakes and their food is good too. My wife loves their chile cheese fries which serve 2 of us easily. The local love the place as well.
