This casual hometown restaurant has excellent food and great service. If you decide to have a meal here, do not miss out on desert. Homemade pies are on the menu as well as soft serve ice cream, cakes, and my personal favorite....hot fudge cake.

We've been driving past this restaurant for years and thought we would stop in. Very casual and inexpensive dining. Food quality is the same - casual (served on paper) and inexpensive.

Extensive menu, fast service, lots of burgers served in paper, salad bar no longer exists. Its OK for a quick bite and better than the major chains. Table service.
