Peanut butter on a hamburger

2nd visit to this throwback place on the boardwalk in Wildwood. Lots of diverse burger selections including the Nutty Professor with bacon, jalapeños and--wait for it-- peanut butter. Surprisingly very yummy and certainly very filling.

We were at Wildwood for Beach Blast and the weather Saturday was awful for the beach. We finished up a game and were looking for somewhere quick to grab food as we did not want to drive to eat. This place was right near where we stayed so we ducked in to grab a quick burger. The atmosphere was very... More

The burgers are really good here. They have a lot of variations on a plain burger even one with donuts instead of rolls.

Surprisingly good fast food on the boardwalk. We ducked in here during a rain shower and decided to have lunch. I had a plain foot long hot dog with fries and my husband had a build your own hotdogs with fries, we split some fried pickles and each had a soda. It was all good but it was a little... More

Their Tuna Salad is very tasty & good. Not too much mayonnaise; and their Fried Pickles are good too. Their service is polite and quick. The way it should be. And I appreciated that as well. the prices were appropriate. The decor was retro 50--60' Nice touch. Bob Lecato, Mercerville NJ.

For a boardwalk diner, they have a huge selection of stuff. If you're into 50s and 60s retro style, I would also recommend coming here. The atmosphere is great. The staff is super duper friendly. The menu has a wide selection of unique hot dogs and burgers. My boyfriend did the chubby challenge for $20 and he won a free... More

This is a family friendly throwback to something out of Happy Days. Great burgers, fantastic hot dogs and so much more. Located right on the boardwalk across from The Great White roller coaster. Visit and feel like you stepped back in time. Cannot say enough good about the service, food and cleanliness. I will be back this summer.
