Overall was a great experience! Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Food was great! Loved their homemade ranch dressing and Salted Caramel Milk Shake. Would definitely go back if in the mood for a step above a fast food experience.

Love the retro ambience and music. The food is as usual, lots of burgers and shakes and salads. Sadly, there is only 1 real breakfast choice after late morning. The servers were very courteous.

Went in for 7 milkshakes only for kids, at 9ish. Suppose to be open until 10. The person working tonight, Friday October 13, said they were closed. Really? Lost business?

A decent spot for a quick bite. I had the hickory burger, which was decent. A bit greasy, but I was satisfied. French fries had no taste. Restaurant was filling up, but quiet. No background music, just the sounds of a cash register processing tabs.
