50's atmosphere with good food and great ice cream choices

Their strombolies are very large and I like the flavor. The Clay Burger is large but messy to eat. I have found staff friendly and helpful.

Great local small town place. The pizza was very good and atmosphere was very inviting. Prices were good and lots of local people to talk with. Nice place to Stop for a bite.

I have lived in this area for about 7 years and did not know this place existed. This is one of the best kept secrets in the area. This place has really good food and seems to be kept a secret by the folks local to Hebron. We have eaten here several times in the past couple months and have... More

They have great ice cream and pretty good food including pizza. Love to sit outside and eat here when the weather is good for that and the grandsons love the root beer floats!

"A family kind of place" is on the back of the uniforms and that is right on! Home cooked and fresh food with a great local story to go with it. Great food, service, and atmosphere for lunch while we were in town visiting a customer of ours! Stromboli is excellent, fried green beans are awesome, and the French fries... More

Once a grand 1950's ice cream pallor, but its days have been long gone. Needs major overhaul in interior seating, training of staff and service. Pizza is average...a bit greasy. Strombolis are good. Ice cream has been there a while.

Every Friday night I would get a Stromboli, it's that good. When I have people in town they push me to take them here because they are hooked on the Stromboli... More

This is a hidden gem in little Hebron, Ohio. They specialize in Strombolis which are my wife's favorite. However, I prefer the Cafe Burger which is a double cheeseburger that Big Mac wishes it old be ! So juicy, so tasty just like you remember from your first taste in childhood. Then top your meal with Hershey's ice cream. I... More

Been coming for a long time. We live in the area. Every time we come food is good but the service is so bad and it takes forever to get your food. We was here an hour before we got our appetizer, and it was wrong!

I have been eating here for a long time, and being in the military its one of the places on a short list of where to eat when I come home.
