If you like "sloppy joes" you will love Tender Maid. You can even try to set the record for the most eaten at one sitting. Lots of fun.

This is real old school with counter seating and loose meat burgers made from high quality ground beef with whatever fixin's you like added ! Best Shake/malt I have had in awhile .... all is hand made. Unique place that has been there for 60+ years ! Very quick service and very friendly ....adults and kids like it.

Very friendly service. They are famous for their "loose" meat sandwiches. They have delicious milkshakes! As you walk in you get greeted with a smile. There are stools around the counter. It can get busy sometimes and you might have to wait for a stool. There are no tables or booths. A lot of locals go here.

The crumbled hamburger on a bun is delicious, and the malts are homemade, too. People who used to live here and come back for a visit always go to the Tendermaid.
