Sorry to say, but they've pulled the plug. I ate there fairly regularly, excellent quality food and always very friendly service.

I stopped in to Thurston's for a chocolate shake. I love shakes and I like to try them at different places. I didn't have anything else so I can't speak to their staple items. I understand that I was just getting a chocolate shake but...More

If I need quick quality meal this is my jam. The thurston burger for $3.99 is a deal! You can build it anyway you want it. Excellent fries. Nice local family. Casual atmosphere. Family friendly. Enjoy!

My husband and I ate here for a late lunch not too long ago, and was less than impressed with the overall experience. The service was excellent, but that was the high-point of our visit. The burgers were dripping in grease, and both the burgers...More
