The pulled pork sandwich is sweet; the bun soft and thin. Don't go here for a healthy meal, but for yummy-ness. Wright's can't be beat! My husband says the shakes are great too.

I’d recommend this place simply for the experience. You can get better burgers but you’re not getting an old fashioned drive-up with the “others”. Food was great. Service was fast. Milkshake was outrageously delicious. They accept all credit cards.
