The hamburgers are all beef patties, so no soy or fillers. The wait staff are inexperienced and poorly trained- we observed an argument between the manager and wait staff while there- unacceptable.

The seating area is pleasant, and the food comes out fast. The fries are great, the pork tenderloin okay, and the root beer float is my very favorite thing. I especially appreciate that they bring around pitchers of root beer for free refills.

This restaurant serves the best burgers, sandwiches, fries and root beer. The service is very fast and there is continuous refilling of root beer mugs. Great buns, too. Very fresh.
