Shakes and more

Lines out the door in hot weather. We caught a lull in the line and had some shakes. I loved the fresh fruit thick shake. Old school and delicious. There is a small outdoor and small indoor eating area on the busy street.

the place has the best shakes around, if you come during the summer expect to encounter a line. Every time we have gone there has been a line of people out the door and this TINY place is packed. Well worth the wait.

We had the best vanilla milkshake I think I have ever had., a cheese burger and an order of onion rings (also good). Two of us split this meal and the bill was $14.58 which seems a bit pricey for what is basically a hamburger stand.

This place is definitely a staple in McCall. It's a little on the pricey side seeing as it's upscale fast food type food, but it's all quality food. We have stopped here upon entering town or on our way out for years.

A classic diner menu and ambiance. Great burgers, especially the mushroom burger. Fries, fry sauce, tots. Hand-made milkshakes in all the classic flavors. There is a grassy area on the side with tables set up that is very convenient if you have pets or children.

Having met in McCall, my wife and I drive through on road trips once or twice a year and always stop here. We never leave hungry and are always impressed. Good burgers, good wraps and outstanding fries--golden brown and lots of them. Our fresh strawberry shake on this trip was very good. A good value for good food.

We had lunch here and really enjoyed their great burgers and shakes. We were happy to know that they serve grass-fed beef. Another big plus was the super nice, friendly staff, an unexpected pleasure to be served by such nice young men.

The staff was friendly but after reading all of the great reviews we were a little disapointed in the shakes. Out of 6 of us, only 2 enjoyed and finished our shakes (oreo). They were extremely sweet and the berry ones me and my husband had hardly had any flavor. I wish we had just saved the $24 and skipped... More

As the title explains the food was nothing to write home about and was over-priced. I guess I was expecting a well-seasoned burger for $9+. I had the Baconeer and it was ok, the only flavor came from the bbq sauce and there were two little slices of bacon. The fries were good. There were 4 of us and for... More
