The atmosphere is like stepping back in time. However the staff is super efficient and polite. We didn't bring cash and the owner allowed us to just "stop back in to pay whenever we had cash". This is unheard of in this day and age....More

I've been here at all hours of the day and night. Somehow the food tastes a little better when I come here after midnight, ha.

Good, hometown flavors. When you are in Shamokin, PA don't forget to stop in. You won't be sorry. Everyone needs to try it.

The cost of a burger or hotdog is over $4. That's ridiculous considering what it is! It's not worth it!!

The prices have gone up since the last time I've been there. If/when you go, make sure to wear something that you won't mind smelling until you wash it. It's the "coney" smell. Make sure you get a burger with everything... You may like it...you...More
