We are always looking for something that is affordable which is very hard to find on the Cape. My friend and I ordered a double cheeseburger. I ordered the gluten free bun which is pretty good. It can fall apart and become very messy. I...More

Easy, elevated fast food with solid seafood options. Great place to take the kiddos for a stress-free dinner. Pro: They serve beer. Con: Parking can be tricky.

Family with little ones. Order at window then wait. Pretty efficient but have a snack in hand if your kids are impatient. All seating outside so consider weather. Burgers, fried fish limited menu. Ok food. Some in our family love it and go every trip...More

They have the burger thing figured out- charbroiled, bun toasted on both sides, nice sauce. Also too: the best fried onions rings possible. Outdoor dining area full of contented families.

Great tasting burgers, fries and onion rings. Don't be fooled by the long line, they are very efficient, and move people through very quickly. The only drawback is that if you eat there, the metal patio chairs are a little uncomfortable, but still worth the...More

We grew up here. We played on the Cape's beaches, we swam in the sound and in the bay, and we savored every hour of the late summer sun. Most importantly, we ate. Burgers, lobster rolls, clam rolls, hot dogs, onion rings, shakes, ice cream...We love the Cape's iconic food. We created the knack with one purpose in mind: to share the food that we grew up with, the food that hits the spot after a day at the beach, the food that defines summers on Cape Cod.
