Really miss Chip. Burgers are still awesome, but a bit drier. New owner added potatoes to the bean soup and ruined it. Can't get a hot dog anymore.

I would rate this excellent but Chip no longer works the grill :( the cook now is still good but does not make burgers as good as he did. As it is a bar it has that bar atmosphere which is nice and you'll always see the regulars make their way to stop by :)

Chip is a delight to visit with and runs a delighful bar and old time grill. it really feels like going back in time when entering herb and thelmas, it reminds me of a bar that would be right at home in archie bunker's neighborhood. and i mean that in the best possible way. Tip: get the grilled onions on... More

Introduce yourself to Chip and meet the locals. Hometown place, simple, clean and cheap. You will love it.
