We went in for lunch @2 and wanted something quick & easy. It’s really small & hard to find seat, but burgers were fresh & good, service when they are closing at 3 hard to get drink refills.

Thanks for stopping in for lunch. I'm glad you enjoyed your sandwich. Sorry about the restroom. The restaurant was built in the early 50's and apparently they didn't think a restroom was a neccesity. We do have wet naps if you stop in again and...More
