Reliably Good Comfort Food!

White Manna's burgers - you know what to expect -yummy burgers which are comfort food! Sure it's not the healthiest stuff, but it's always good and always crowded!

Been going here since I was a kid. Small place, but that's part of the charm. Sliders before they were called sliders. The extra late hours are a welcome change. Just get some with cheese and onions. Drinks and fries are not ordered from the cook.

We've had burgers everywhere and this place is one of the best, if not the best. Order at least 3-4 with the cheese and onions and you won't be disappointed. Tiny place but it is a true institution

They've been making sliders the same way here for almost 80 years, with fresh ingredients (you can see every burger start out as a ball of bright red, freshly-ground beef) on a grill in full view of the customers. Well worth a detour if you're anywhere nearby. It's what White Castle USED to be 90 years ago, before they destroyed... More

Like most people I heard about this from DD&D and it certainly doesn't disappoint. It's very small and you need to have your wits about you as the ordering process is pretty odd, one person takes one part of your order like the sliders then another takes the drinks order etc etc. be on your toes and it's a great...

Drove an hour to eat at the White Manna. Its iconic, great experience. Sliders were everything I'd had hoped for. If your a foodie thats into checking out the old local roadside grub, than this is a must visit.

I visited White Manna just before closing while on a road trip. My boyfriend and I had heard so much about this place on TV, so I was expecting some of the best burgers ever. The place is crazy small -- I don't think more than15 people can stand comfortably in it at once. The flat-top is in the center,... More

It is a smallest restaurant you may visit. You must understand that is fast food as is. There is no classy neither fancy Things you can get there. Burgers are small and tasty, my wife love it. I got stake burger. It is for working people, stoping for the lunch. No more no less.

Classic old (think 30's-40's-era tiny lunch-counter-type roadside diner) burger joint that makes fresh sliders (get 'em with the grilled onions, of course) and the usual accompaniments. The taste is a throwback to what food used to taste like. Nice and fresh, made-to-order, and slightly greasy. Fortunately the place itself is not. Although still mostly fitted with the original interior (lots... More
