Hanging above my head was a stuffed flamingo covered in cobwebs and spider egg sacks. Next table over had a window sill covered in cobwebs. The floors were just plain gross. Our glasses looked dirty. In spite of this, they do make a tasty burger. I won't be back.

I love diners and dive bars. This was two rolled into one. At lunch you have a choice of about 22 burger combinations and one side for $6.99....on and don't forget the $1.00 margaritas! Everyone at our table enjoyed their burgers. Very big! I couldn't even finish mine. Don't expect anything fancy. The burgers and fries are served on serving... More

I have never seen such filth at a restaurant. The floors were filthy, the bathroom was a mess and the cook kept touching his nose, face and cooking at the same time. No hand washing was seen. Nope, won't be back.

Even though the place was packed, we were able to get a table for two. The place was filled with ball teams. Service was good, and the food was great.
