Good food served family-style on the weekends at lunch. Fun place with antique car memorabilia on walls and 2 Ford cars cut in half around the booths. If you go on weekend evenings you get to see Elvis perform. Fun times.

This is located downtown. The desserts looked great (we were to full from the lunch to have desserts). The burgers are out of this world. Buns are made on site. Service was fast. The food was hot when it arrived. Would recommend this to everyone
