Good Burger

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We ordered a hot dog, burger, and fries everything was good and the wait staff are very friendly. We plan to visit again.

The food taste like your typical school cafeteria food. A lot of microwaves and grease. Cash only, no cards.

Not much in my book. Just cheap food served cheap. But if you want to go in or drive up you got a choice for cheap food

We discovered Ammons a few years ago and always go when in the area. We are Friday supper, later Friday night dessert and Saturday lunch there on one weekend. Wonderful hot dogs, ruebens, pies and ice cream. Had the fried shrimp platter Friday - was good but nothing special. Sandwiches are excellent and pricing is lower than most restaurants. Their...

This is definitely a "drive in" place. Most food is frozen then prepared but the hot dogs are worth the stop. Service is also good and friendly. We always stop when in town

I always order way too much food, but it's all so good. The hotdogs with everything and cheeseburgers are my favorite. Definitely a family atmosphere. I don't care a whole lot for ice cream, but their shakes are really good too.

People were nice. They were open later than anyone else and therefore we ended up there by default and rccommendation of a local. The food was cafeteria quality, not what you would hope for in a restaurant. It was prices cheap, so that helped. I would eat BBQ, Burger, or Soup.

The banana splits are to die for . Very tasty and very large. I recommend sharing one . Otherwise the food is mediocre at best. Not the best placd in the area for a meal. It's always crowded though so someone must like it

Great local restaurant for lunch and dinner. No frills and meals are served in paper plates. Wide selection of food items. Great grilled cheese with bacon sandwhiches as well as huge fish sandwhiches but the tartar sauce could be better. Super friendly staff with long time familiar faces...good for business! Good soup selections and salad bar too.
