Best place to eat in this area ,Hot Dogs and all the Burgers are excellent, good quick service.

BrightStar is a great place to get a good meal or sandwich. Salad Bar is great. Pizza is always hot. Ice cream in a Cone anytime. Hot dogs are the BOMB, none better;. Service is quick nice and friendly. I love the call in line and the food is always ready when you get there. They always remember... read more

I so wanted to like this place, it was a cute throw-back to the hip restaurants of old, but the food our group had was so poor for the most part, I don't think I'll ever go back. On the good side of the menu... my wife's did love her Texas Chicken sandwich and my son had the bacon cheeseburger,... More

Great place for a burger, fries and a cherry lemon sundrop or a couple chilli dogs and onion rings. One place you have to experince at least once

A little pricey but great for locals. Very off the beaten path which is what makes it cool. Lots of heart here. Consider the chicken sandwich

The lottaburger can not be beat. They have crinkle cut fries too, which are a favorite in our house. This is not a fancy place, but when we want a burger and are not feeling up to doing it ourselves, this is our first thought.

food very good - reminds you of an old fashioned grill where hamburgers and hotdogs are delish!!!!! and delicious milkshakes as well - for those with a sweet tooth. also, a drive thru for your convenience but you have to call ahead to pick up - not a drive up and order drive thru.

I know, people are often turned off by the exterior but they're trying to maintain the nostalgia! BrightStar has been featured on Diner's Drive-ins and Dives! If you're new to the area, their Lotta-Burger/Lotta-burger with cheese is HIGHLY recommended. They also have shrimp, wings, pizza, A SALAD BAR (who has those these days?) with fresh home made dressings; and some... More

You order at the register and they call your number. The staff is family friendly, checkers and chess set up to keep the kids busy. Local radio station set up in the restaurant plays old time rock and roll. Nice place to relax with the family and see your neighborhood friends...

I stopped by for my first time yesterday 5-22-13, with two friend's who had been there before. I got the chuckwagon burger, food was very good, place was clean, and price's were in the ballpark. I will return with the wife very soon, oh, I almost forgot the great music, cruise-in's, and quick trip back to the 60's.---WW
