The atmosphere is right out of the 50's. Traditional drive-in restaurant. Food is very good and portions are for a big appetite. Burgers and fries are well prepared with fresh toppings.

This place has the best steak sandwich in town. The crisp cut fries are also a must try they are to die for. Great service and outdoor dining.
