Just cant say enough good things about Hafner's. Excellent menu, great service and wonderful food. Atmosphere is just right. The shaved steak on toasted roll with fries was super. Same for the rubin. Our server Michael was most attentive and courteous . Two thumbs up.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The server was efficient and friendly although quiet. The burgers were delicious I must say - really one of the best I've had. The fries were tasty but there really weren't a lot for the size...More
