This place is a landmark. Famous for amazing burgers, soap and chili. I’ve been a customer for 40 years and the quality hasn’t changed. Get a double Zipburger with cheese!

This place offers a very good burger and a variety of sandwiches. For the non-meat eater, there was a tuna salad sandwich, fish sandwich, a garden burger, and a black bean burger. I opted for the tuna sandwich, which I would say was above average....More
