Lots of history on the walls, and they try to live up to the atmosphere depicted in the SNL skits. However, the burgers are thin and precooked. Roll is pretty good. Beer on tap. If you must eat here, order the double cheeseburger if at...More
I guess this is the famous restaurant attributed to “ cheeseburger, cheeseburger” in old SNL sketches. Interesting place, did see a picture of John Belishi signed by his WIFE, oh well. Burgers are thin, cheese thrown on, not melted, only good thing was the roll....More
