Good burger but very expensive, $23 for 2 burger, 2 shakes and 1 fry. The strawberry shakes were excellent. Good place for a treat.

Freshly made burgers and the thickest shakes around. You can call ahead if not you will have a bit of a wait, but worth it.

I've been coming here my whole life. I brought my son here for the first time today. It's just as good as it's always been, and it looks like the third generation of my family is going to become a fan.

You can call ahead and place your order for pick-up, use the little drive thru window, or walk up to the window. I've always just gone to the walk up window, but I've had friends who have called and placed orders and the... More

Known for their milkshakes. But they also have a delicious menu and wonderful food choices. Lots of items to choose from not to mention A+ service.
