Not open until 1 February

I just drove by and they are doing some reconstruction. Will open again on 1 February 2016. Be sure to check this place out then. Very good burgers. Expect long lines during lunch hour.

This is truly one of the last great burger stands between Seattle and Tacoma, Washington! Burgers, Hotdogs and Fries the way they were intended to be served! I've been eating at this Family owned Hamburger Stand since 1980, and it's Staff & Food have never disappointed me once! The Stand also carries one of the largest selections of Milk Shakes,... More

Stopped there again for a quick burger. Great burgers but a bit slow on the window service. Plenty of people working inside but they seem to always be behind on the orders. But well worth the wait. Outside seating at picnic tables or drive away. No cover for seating. Closed in the winter months.

It's what I imagine McDonald's used to be when it was first opened in the 50's. Fairly Quick food all made to order. Fries were delicious. Beautiful setting with picnic tables and flowers.

Step back in time (at this location) with a great burger and a shake in hand! We sat at the benches just behind the place and enjoyed our food a lot. It is an interesting place but trully worth the drive to go there. Burgers are very tasty and highly recommended. Shakes, too. Will definitely go back.

I have eaten here for years, used to eat there every Friday during the summer. The carefree picnic setting is wonderful even though it sits between I-5 and Pac Hwy. Here's the crux of the Poor review....we went a few weeks ago on a Sunday, the hamburgers were still great, but those fries were so limp, brown and greasy that... More

Very good and fresh. Go for the double, unless your real hungry try the triple, awesome shakes & frys too! There's also beautiful picnic area to eat at right there with nice picnic tables and flowers.

The staff were friendly, the cheeseburger deluxe with bacon tasted great, rivaling Five Guys, and the picnic style setting was a nice change. Those are the best parts of the place. The burgers are spendy and have small patties (1/8 lb). The fries were soggy and limp, but seasoned well. I figured they'd have potato salad made in-house since their... More

It's a really cute and nostalgic looking place but that's about it. Monsterburger, Herfy's and there associate burger joints have a much better burger for $2.99 The milkshakes aren't nothing to write home about either. But we liked the little park like setting to eat in and the look of the place. Carl's and Jack in the Box are actually... More
