Its rare to see a cute little burger and shake place like this, but I love that it's still here! I grew up in this town and this is one of the most historic locations and delicious food that anyone can enjoy!

The only thing on the menu that has changed in 100 years is the prices. We had a simple lunch and an "oh my gosh" for desert. For two people who grew up on bologna sandwiches, it was a nostalgic, pleasant lunch.

This place totally takes you back to your youth in a very small town. I had a pimento cheese sandwich and an ice cream cone and my bill was $4.50. I'm not sure you can get an ice cream cone anywhere in the world for...More
