“A Drive In With A Difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This place is pretty non-descript on the exterior but certainly is worth a visit. It has the typical "fast food" style interior excepting the decorations on the walls which make it appealing. The burgers are advertised as angus beef and are very good and appear to be hand formed. I had the chili cheeseburger and my guest had a plain burger, both of which were dressed to our specs. We also tried the macoroni side which is made with a spicy pepper jack cheese-not hot just tasty. The fries are decent. On an earlier visit we tried the hot wings which are ok and the hand dipped foot long corn dog which is pretty good. The people are very accomodating and have a variety of condiments for your food.-just ask if you don't see it. Ice cream and salads are offered too although I've not tried either. This place is just recently opened and I hope it stays as these places are a dying breed.
