“Home of the hothamburger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Try the jr hot hamburger--it will be more than enough. For those of you that don't know here is what you get. A piece of bread with a good size hamburger patty on it, the patty is then covered with a mound of french fries and then the whole thing is drowned in brown gravy. It is it bad for you--you betcha. It is wonderful--you betcha. This is this every heart surgeon's wet dream. They probably recomend it to all of their patients, but you should try it at least once. They have been making these things for over 60 years--and there is a reason they are stiil in business.

P.S. Try to get there some other time than during the lunch hour unless you have a lot of time to kill. The reservation system, if you want to call it that, is on the [I kid you not] honor system!

“A local favorite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This restaurant is on its second or third generation of family ownership, therefore the recipes are the same and the tastes and quality remain. Slide up to the bar or nestle in a comfy booth. The servers are attentative and chatty in this diner-style restaurant.

Yes, a piece or two of toast, a large burger, gravy (and caramelized onions should your heart desire) is this restaurant's claim to fame. The restaurant has outlived a tornado, a flood, and a town of change, but it remains. If you're not into the big burger scene, try their awesome baked potato (ask for butter on the side or they'll put a half-stick butter on it for you), their simple salads with homemade garlic dressing (it's AWESOME).

If you're into trying local, historical restaurants while visiting a community, this is the place for you!

“Hot Hamburger with gravy over all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Home of the hot hamburger (aka "heart attack on a plate"). They are delicious and you've got to give them a try at least once! Their steaks and regular hamburgers are really good too.
