This place has been around at least 50 years, and well worth the drive if you are a burger fanatic. Nothing fancy, and a little wait to get your food, but their burgers are the best juicy burgers around. I have got to say, again this not at all fancy, but go I don't think you will be disappointed.

The burger I had was like the good ones I used to get at my favorite cafe. The car hop service can't be beat and the prices are good.

not as good as it use to be, but still has a good burger. I tend to wonder about the cleanliness here, but I try to look past that and enjoy the burger. Lately the food hasn't been as good as in the past. Still a good place to eat.

Your perfect drive-in dive type restaurant. They won't be winning any awards for being healthy, but they got the great greasy burgers you want from a place like this, hand-spun shakes in great flavors. They service can be a little slow depending on the crowds, but I'll take slow knowing the food is made fresh.

Just plain good food. It is a greasy take out joint, but you know that going in. Atmosphere is not there, but you can imagine this as a real Hum-Dinger back in the day.

The restaurant has been around here as long as I can remember. If you want hand made hamburger patties made the way you want, fries, shakes and a vast array of menu items, This is the place to go. The only draw back is that the speakers don't work and you must waite for a waitress to come to you... More

One of those little hole in the wall places, that absolutely shocks you when you see the size of your hand made burger! One of the best I have ever eaten....and I have lived in five states! Onion rings great too! Service is slow, but worth the wait!!
