No doubt this is a small “mom and pop” kind of restaurant. It’s a basically a roadside burger stand so there aren’t a lot of options, but what was available was tasty and served with a smile. A small place like this provides fresh and...More

Super fresh burger for the hubs and a super fresh chef’s salad for me. Onion rings made like they are supposed to be and homemade ranch dressing. Not a huge menu but enough to satisfy our lunch appetites. Great service. Would come back for the...More

The menu is thin and has little variety, the surroundings are scaled-down and plain, yet this is a fun place for a simple meal. The folks are nice, the portions generous, and the food tastes great.

There are not a lot of choices in this town but on a local recommendation we went here. Warmly greeted, clean and tidy. Menu was limited but the roast beef along with the salad bar was good. Large portions, desert looked good but too full.

Not only do I not understand the good reviews but I can't figure out why this restaurant is still open. I guess the huge 'for sale' sign is a good indicator. There are no menus, just a chalkboard on the wall. The place is dirty...More

I will admit that it doesn’t look like much of anything and the giant for sale sign doesn’t inspire confidence BUT there really aren’t many choices in this town and I honestly can say that both the burger and fries were perfection. The bun was...More
