We return here for a burger every time we are in Lynchburg. I think that the place would be categorized as a dive; but that seems to be where you get the best food!

Burgers bigger than your head, ranch you want to drink and a great atmosphere! Have been coming here for as long as I can remember! Don't forget to bring a Sharpie to mark your spot!

We love this place. They have delicious burgers and the best seasoned fries in town. Place has been around forever, has hundreds of license plates adorning the walls and is super cool. You can write/carve your name in the table to remember your visit.
