“Delicious Food, Awesome Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Ate here twice during a two day stay, would have been a third but they were closed on our departure day.

Good selection of breakfast and lunch options, decent prices. There seems to always be a wait as the joint is very tiny, but man do they put out plates of food!! This is not a place to hang out with friends, you just get in, eat and get out, which is completely fine.

The burger was scratch made and delicious. Cole slaw had great flavour. The Chuck Wagon breakfast special was a little greasy, but hey, I didn't order oatmeal. ;-)

Waitstaff is friendly and they look like they like their jobs. Splitting up the bills was no issue. If only all waitresses could be this nice!

Will eat there again without a doubt!

“Small, but fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The burger chef was like a machine, running 4-5 orders at the same time, flipping the buns up in the air, and still finding time to do a magic trick for the young girl sitting at the counter. Small restuarant, and we waited maybe 20 minutes for our order since we arrived during the lunch rush, but worth it. Great burger, but the cheese steak was just a package of frozen meat heated up on the grill.

“Greasy, delicious burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

The Chuck Wagon was what we hoped it would be--good tasting burger and Black Russian Sandwich in a diner setting with no fuss!
