Love their fries, the onion rings and, when peaches are in season, the peach burger (a fave). Quick friendly service, sparkly-clean atmosphere. Husband swears by their milkshakes (and he’s an expert!) Well worth a stop. Do check their hours on the website before you go.

The milkshakes are hand dipped and are awesome. The service is a little slow. Very quaint shop that has everything. Hamburger patties were hand pressed fresh ground beef, and plenty of different toppings

Been here a few times. Always a good burger, good fries. Fast, friendly service. Closes early afternoon during the week, so check hours before you go.

It has the feel of an old timey soda fountain. The menu is very creative. There are several different burger selections, which can be ordered as a veggie burger or a regular burger. I had the "Georgia burger" veggie burger. The veggie burger itself was high quality, which seeds and visible pieces of veggies. It came with sauteed onions, grilled... More

I love their hamburgers, vanilla milkshake and sweet potato fries. Everything we've ever had in here is wonderful. They do a brisk business and all the home towners love it. Try it............

This place is packed at lunch and for good reason! Even when it's a packed lunch rush they get you seated pretty quickly. The chicken salad and sweet potato fries are AMAZING! You won't be sorry you ordered either of these! Great service and neat little connecting gift shop. I make excuses to stop by this place for lunch!

My wife and I stopped in today for lunch. Both had the southern burger and split an order of fries. Great burgers and service. Just wish I had left room for a milkshake. Maybe next time.

Poor food, poor service, and the chips were in a bag that was just literally thrown on the table. I'm sorry we didn't just pack a picnic lunch and head up the road to the state park

For those that remember the old grill type restaurants from the 70's this is kind of that place. Don't come in a hurry come to enjoy your meal and time with friends or family.

My husband and I split the Georgia burger (with grilled peaches) and the Deep South burger (with fried green tomato, ranch dressing & pimento cheese ~ better than it sounds :)) ~ kids had cheeseburgers and a Philly cheesesteak sandwich ~ we all split chili cheese fries and ordered sodas and one milkshake ~ the burgers were all delicious and...
