Legendary to the locals! When eating here, you must have the gravy on your fries. Other than that, it's a typical "clock" type restaurant.

This is a typical 60s drive in that has lasted the test of time. No longer any car side service but the same great menu. Burgers and fries, Chicken plates, chili dogs, onion rings. Nostalgia!

Everything is really good-service, food and value. My go-to place for cheeseburgers or hotdogs. I do not want gravy on my fries, but my friends say it is fantastic.

Clean restrooms and dining area. Good solid food and great service. A local landmark that I have visited for almost twenty years. Really great burgers. Quaint customs such as serving slaw in a cup. Place just keeps getting better.

Carhops are long gone. Everyone eats inside. Same friendly service. Chicken, hot dogs w/ chili, hamburgers, etc. Not health food. It's drive in food... More

If you like a flat-top grill burger this is your place. I prefer the double with cheese as it melts perfectly into the bun, make it a platter because you don't want to miss out on the Gravy fries!
