Step back in time.

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

We love this place. If you call ahead there is no long wait. They do a good job with the space they have, just remember to be patient. If you enjoy having your lunch in a park setting you'll love this place.

This place is a dive but the food is consistently good and the prices cannot be beaten. Sometimes a bit of a wait, but well worth it.

We were looking for somewhere to eat dinner before the Eagles concert at the Tacoma Dome. We spotted this place - really just a cinder box square - and decided to give it a try. The burgers were quite tasty, but I could pass on the fries. They were nice and hot but fairly tasteless. The milkshakes are made with... More

A quaint part of the Tacoma/Fife history.. but not sure the burgers and such are worth the longggggg wait during the prime summer season. The outdoor bench seating is kind of cool.
