We recently discovered this place upon the recommendations of others, and were not disappointed. The food was very good, enjoying the burgers, fries, and milkshakes. Very fast service, in fact, we couldn't finish the salad before the hot foods were served. A few tables outside...More

This is the spot we go for carryout. They have a delish chicken sandwich & a gosh-by-golly milkshake - chocolate & vanilla both are great! They are an oasis in an area with few resources. Good thing they're great.

Visited with a large group and we virtually filled all the tables since there's only three inside. Outside seating is available. Most had burgers and they varied from good to excellent. If you order fries, you might consider sharing, the onion rings were amazing. Great...More
