This place was fantastic, we are so glad we stumbled across it while staying in Front Royal. The restaurant was packed, which was a great sign, so we stopped and I am so thankful!!! The food was great, real burgers, hand cut fries, and thick onion rings....unlike chain fast food restaurants. My husband was so impressed by the food he... More

We did a quick drive through after hiking in Shenandoah based on some rave reviews and we weren't disappointed...exceptional burgers made on really great rolls. I absolutely demolished mine in no time. Highly recommended.

After visiting Skyline Caverns, we decided to stop for an early dinner. Looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor and said "why not." Glad we did! The burgers were wonderful (better than what my husband makes at home on the grill, please don't tell him), juicy, moist with a nice char on the outside. The fries are made fresh and... More

Ran across this burger joint while going to the skyline drive and thought we would try it. The best burger I have ever had! The bun was toasted to perfection, meat tasted fresh, delicious. Oh and the frozen custard was yummy also. I

After spending the day on Skyline Drive, we drove into Front Royal looking for a place to grab a bite to eat, and we stumbled upon this place! The place was very clean and the staff was polite and helpful. They did slightly mess up our order, but they quickly resolved it, and the food was excellent. Although most people... More

Really, really good burgers. And attentive service. It's a bit like a converted Arthur Treacher's inside but bright and clean and flowers on the tables. I can't believe the McDonald's a few doors down gets any business.

Some of the best hamburgers ever. Fresh found every day. We liked it so much that when we passed through again three days later... More
