Where the locals go. Not fancy, but a fun place for a burger, fries, etc. The owner does the grilling. You order and pay, give a name and the call you when it's ready. No fuss, no muss, but good.

Eric's is a must. The best burger, crinkle fries and fountain soda this side of the Mississippi. Great ambiance. Eric is a true southern gentlemen - Greets his guests, asks if everything is okay and then he moves long. You will not be disappointed.
