Stopped in finally after hearing lots of people talk about it. Ordered a couple different burgers to take home and try. Enjoyed the double King Louis burger with cheese. All the food was good. Also tried the mushrooms and potato planks.

Fresh food brought to your car in a timely manner. Made when you order. Can call in an order and pick up to go. Small inside seating but mostly a a drive-in establishment. Root beer is good too. Reasonably priced.
