Every time I eat here I leave full and happy. The menu is full with legendary burgers and the roast pork sandwich is always a crowd pleaser. I encourage everyone to stop in and try the special of the day or what catches your eye....👍👍😋😋

This is a good place for breakfast and burgers. It is not a fancy place but the food is good. It has been there for 50 years or more.

Excellent, you have to try the roast pork sandwich and fries. Just pull up and someone will come out and take your order or you can go in and sit down.

Tried the Earl double cheeseburger, it sounded great but I thought only ok. Liked the homemade fries, they were tasty. Onion rings and slaw were not remarkable. Probably the best choice around for burgers though.

The burgers are world-famous and all menu items are cooked to perfection. An old school diner atmosphere and curb service!
