Walk in this place and it looks like it was stuck in the 60's. The service is great, food is fresh and the prices reflect a great value. A must for those within the area. Great place - it survived all those years because it a great place...

I love to eat lunch here if I am in the area. French fries are my favorite. Old fashion down home food. Everything is good. The parking lot is very small, but I usually find a parking place on the street. Prices very reasonable and service quick.

It's mostly an older crowd and high school aged kids (Page High is less than a mile away). The staff is friendly and they have great limeade and cherry cokes. If you're looking for a quick, cheap lunch, BG is the... More
