Home of the original “whopper” hamburger, it also had delicious fries (not from frozen) and malted milkshakes. Not expensive, either.

If you want a good old fashion meal, this is the place to go! It was like stepping back in time for an old time burger and pie. The food is delicious and you just can't beat a frosty mug of root beer from the...barrel!More

Amazing home town atmosphere and home cooked food. Pies are fresh and homemade and should always be on your personal menu. I also recommend the tenderloin sandwiches.

This mom and pop sit down restaurant is GREAT!! You order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. They have the BEST ice cold root beer I have had anywhere. I also had the Willow burger which was also great. If...in Celina you need to stop here!!More

Stopped in for a quick burger, got the Willow whopper. Tasty but not the best double cheeseburger I ever had. Could have used a better tomato. Fries were fresh out of the fryer and not bad, a little greasy. But the best was the little...scoop of soft serve ice cream they gave me for free after I finished. A really nice touch that shows they really love their customers.More
