My daughter and I went for a quick lunch when the place we wanted to go was closed. She had never been here before and it is unique. No tables, carry out only. The burgers are very tasty, but small, which was what we wanted. The fries were crispy and not greasy. I was surprised that there was no line... More

I haven't been here in years. Then I got a chance when I came back to visit my family. It hasn't changed the food is always very good. The lines can look long but they move you in and out fairly quickly. Awesome place.

The set up is amazing, the burgers are amazing. Why this isn't a major chain is a mystery. But those of us in Paxton are grateful they are here.

Disappointed! My order was wrong. I told the girl nicely and she changed my fries out for coleslaw, threw it in the bag and then threw it at me. Yes they were busy but I was very nice and patient. And when I did get to eat my food with my grandmother at the nursing home my burger was missing... More

What makes these so good I am not sure, but they are fresh, hot and good. I have had all kinds of burgers, from the big chains, mom n pop places, the gourmet burgers n these beat them all. No fancy surroundings, flat screen tvs, just good burgers at a good price. If u don't try it, shame on you!

kind of greasy, nothing to rave about, do not like having to sit in the car to eat. Fries were very hot, but hard, no salt. If you like to stand in a long line, eat greasy food and have to eat outside on the ground or in you car this is the place for you

My family came here after a basketball game. We always read Trip Advisor to find new "no chain" places to eat while visiting other towns. This place was rated #2. It was by far the best burger we have had. My kids even asked for seconds!! The next time we are in Paxton, this will be a MUST for this... More

I have literally eaten cheeseburgers all over the United States and as far as fast food these are truly the best! Shakes are great and such affordable prices!

They are ok. You want to stand in a long line and wait for a thin greasy burger- this is your place. The fries are just frozen fries, shakes are good- but not fabulous. Prices are good though. But I don't understand why everyone in the area just raves about this place.
