Burton's was one of my favorite places to eat when I was in college, and it's just as good now, years later! Great salads, burgers and specials. My Mom always LOVED the chicken livers: tender inside and crispy out. My advice is to save room for Burton's famous White Pie! It's awesome, whether you eat a slice...or three!

Had dinner and the chicken livers were fantastic. I really wanted raisin pie, but they were out. However, the cherry pie was wonderful.

The 'white pie' was no big deal and not worth driving out of your way for a slice. The wife and I drove over for a slice (plus some chocolate peanutbutter pie) after reading TA recommendations. Don't get me wrong, neither slice was below average, just not a big deal as portrayed by other guests and signage on the restaurant.

Good family restaurant. We had the steak sandwich the 1st visit and it was really good, could have used a little more steak, but otherwise no complaints. Waitresses were very friendly and on top of their tables.

I met my cousin and her husband for lunch at Burtons. When we were younger our families would eat at Burtons. I especially loved the coconut cream pie with meringue..yesterday I had the chicken and dumplings and they were excellent. Of course I also had the coconut cream pie. I was not disappointed. My cousin had a variety of sides,... More

Years ago, this way a great restaurant. Yes, the popularity of their White Pie stretched far and wide. While camping at Rend Lake this summer, a group of us felt the need for White Pie. So, into the vehicles and off to Burton'w we went. What do you mean you are out of White Pie!!! Well, jaws dropped and now... More
