A fast food restaurant near the museum of history. The decor is fun and I had a very good chicken salad sandwich with fries. They are cooked to order and the prices were very reasonable.

I never thought that a museum would have such a wonderful burger place hidden inside! I was pleasantly surprised!!! Such a huge, juicy hamburger with just the right amount of toppings. Crinkle fries cooked to perfection, and a great deal when you add a drink!!
