This was a great experience, I had the double cheeseburger and fries, husband had the wagon burger, not sure of name, but it was chicken fried steak sandwich, and onion rings, which were home made and wonderful. Service was great, quick and friendly.

I was introduced to this great place and love to go back. The staff is great and attentive. Flavors are very delightful and the pricing is really fair.

Have yet to have something here I haven't liked. Hamburgers are good as is chicken fried steak sandwiches. Chicken Nuggets are actual white meat pieces. Suzy Q's and onion rings are great. Very friendly service. Be sure and top it off with some ice cream! Definitely worth the stop.

The owner talked me into the Jayhawker burger. It is a burger with a slice of ham instead of bacon. Absolutely great. The homemade onion rings were terrific too! Ask for the bottle of house made hot sauce. Compliments everything.

We had hambergers and seasoned curly fries, very good. Service could not have been better, owner works the floor along with her servers. Just... More
