Surprisingly reasonable prices, and very fast service. My (very) large group arrived around 5:30, so we beat the dinner rush, which may have helped. Burgers were delicious, fried cheese was good, and beer was cold and inexpensive.

Excellent cheese sticks. Service was excellent during noon rush. Burgers and chicken sandwich couple with delicious fries. Sweet Tea was the freshest tasting, with unlimited quantities.

Great food and service! You just have to try the cheese sticks!! I wish I had taken a picture. Priced for you and your family and if you like to drink they have them too.

Had to start my new college freshman out right! Fried cheese is to die for as it was back in the 90's when I was in college in Lubbock! Keep up the great work!

Yes the fried cheese is yummy, but not much else is anything special. I did enjoy my Monte Cristo sandwich, messy and yummy! However the burger was just off, bull meat taste to it. Hubby couldn't finish it, luckily he filled up on fried cheese and French fries. You may also want to ask them to read your order back... More

Wow! I cannot even remember the last time I had such a delicious hamburger. Tasty, juicy and melts in your mouth! Don't pass this up ...
