I will admit, I have never had a sloppy joe or any type of loose meat sandwich so it is hard for me to compare - but the skanellus burger is delicous. Definitely a casual, comfortable place to stop for a bite to eat!

The first place we stopped was here when we got into town. The Skanellus Burger is fantastic, the Fish Sandwich you will enjoy and the blackraspberry soft ice cream is a dream that you can't help but want it quite often.

Just had to swing by the other night for their hot butterscotch sundae. It is decadent. They have a varied menu and you may eat inside or out. Lines can be long but they move pretty quickly.
