Burgers

This cute little diner in the McDonough square serves some yummy food. The burgers are delicious. They have a lot of variety in burgers. They also serve ice cream. My kids love sitting at the counter and eating ice cream. If you haven't been, go check it out.

Me and my fiancé came here for lunch. We have been in this area for years and wanted to try this restaurant. Upon walking in we felt like we walked back in time to an retro1950's soda shop. The staff was very friendly. I myself had a burger that I believed close to a pound filled with bacon. This was... More

I ordered for lunch pick up. I got to the restaurant and had to stand and wait for 10 minutes. There were only about 8 - 10 people in the entire dining area. In which 4 was this particular waitress. The burger was already cold. The milkshake was made when I got there which isn't a big issue, but I... More

Floor and tables dirty. Appetizers were good, as was burger, but no one asked us how we wanted the 5 burgers cooked. They... More

We treat our selves to Kirby Gs. Good fun place a little pricey but service and food are good. Can get loud at times but over all good. Lots of old memorabilia rock n roll artists on the wall. Has that soda fountain fifties feel.

I took my beer tour here on the Fourth of July. My wife and I have been here many times and i guess considered a regular. I took 14 here for food and drinks, and we were out in about an hours time. Good timely service. Everyone enjoyed the local beers, and the food. Thanks

I have to say I was surprised. I expected good but got better. The decor was fitting and the food was just off the charts. Exceptional burgers and the best of side orders. Plus the service was exceptionally nice and attentive without being a pest. Hats off to Liberty (our waitress), you should do well.

I have been eating there since they opened. I still eat there once a week. Try The Duke or the Joltin Joe Hamburger. The Jerry Lee steak sandwich is also good. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
