Always good food, real hamburgers not the typical drive-thru burger. Try the "fancy burrito", you'll be addicted.

We stop here nearly every night for ice cream when we are in Columbus (during Texas Antique Week). The staff is super friendly and they dish out HUGE cones of Blue Bell ice cream. They serve hamburgers, tacos, etc. as well, but we mainly come for the ice cream. mmmmmm......
