About
Fast – Delicious – Affordable. Signature items include french fries cut fresh daily, and real dairy custard, frozen on site daily. Said to have the best hot dogs in town, one can load up with a choice of fourteen toppings which, in addition to the old standards, include blue cheese cole slaw and sweet potato mustard! With cheeseburgers, BBQ, our grilled chicken sandwich (think State Fair) and fresh salads, there is something here to please everyone in your group!

We ate their for lunch the other day. The best deal on the menu are their burgers which come with fries and cole slaw. The burgers are fresh made. The fries come close to being as good as Five Guys. Keep up the good work.

Came here with my step son while visiting him at William and Mary. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, fried Mac and cheese(insane) and fried pickles. Way too crowded but the food was good.
