Had lunch with the fam, we all got platters of some kind of burger and all were good, as were those fries! Plus, the kids got milkshakes, very good! I loved all the old toys, comics and memorabilia from other restaurants scattered around.

Stopped in for some of their milkshakes. They were very good but a little more spendy than they should be. Nice ambience and decor, loved reading the old signs hanging on the walls. Pretty cool experience.
