Long standing burger outdoor stand.

Tasty burgers and hot dogs at this covered outside hamburger stand. There is a counter or you sit at picnic tables. Onion rings are a bit greasy but also tasty. Breakfast items and sandwiches are also very good. Quick service, good food reasonable prices.

Great throw-back atmosphere to when life was simpler. It's picnic tables or belly up to the bar. My favorite food to order is the bacon wrapped hotdog and fries but I have eaten and enjoyed other foods on the menu, too. The waitstaff is busy so sometimes you have to flag them down. If you want simple and good, this... More

The servers are fantastic, especially Sue and the food and Milkshakes are the best in the area. The prices are very reasonable and the portion size are huge. The pink lemonade and orange pop were fantastic. The chicken fingers and cheeseburgers were unreal.

It is a pretty no frills kinda place but if you want a good juicy greasy cheesy burger or a really good ole hot dog this is the place for you. The shakes are pretty amazing too, thick rich and creamy.

quick and easy and burgers were tasty and well done. Fries were average. Service was OK but not overly attentive. KInd of a fun concept of drive in, but for the money I think I'd rather go to Wendy's across the street and sit in the AC.

You can go here for lunch and see everybody from a plumber to a judge! The burgers are awesome and the wait staff has been there for years and are great. It's a typical 1950s drive in type place with stools and it opens to 301.

Seems like BJ's and Sam's Club frozen food served at ridiculous prices. I liked nothing. Will not go back.

Stopped here for lunch with the family. This place has a great authentic atmosphere, the staff and service was great and I opted for the Rueben on the specials board which was one of the best I've had. Yes the menu is fairly limited, but the food is excellent and very good value for money. Can't wait to return.

Food was okay, prices were good. I could see how some people might like this place...just be prepared to order a burger and get a side of fries/onion rings. There's not much more to this menu.
