Great food. We had a group of eight everything was good. Cheeseburgers are great. Kept drinks full. Slight wait at the beginning but worth it.

Food was pretty good and prices were reasonable. Wife had a steak sandwich and fries and I had a fried bologna sandwich. You cant get them just anywhere. Bologna was thick cut. Fries were fine. Service was good.
