“Every hamburger imaginable offered”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

This was a better than average hamburger sit-down. You have a choice of every imaginable hamburger that could be thought of. You get plenty of fries to eat along with your hamburger, but the problem is they are string fries. Steak, seasoned, or crinkle fries would compliment the hamburgers better. Great place to take your family and friends though!

Huge burger menu. Cooked to order! Home made chips and malted vinegar were a nice surprise, malt was delicious. Fun atmosphere.

“Burgers and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten here a few times. The menu has tons of burgers with interesting titles and toppings. Same for chicken sandwiches and hoagies.
Lots of food so come hungry. Salads are huge.
Shakes are yummy. Great spot but don't look for low calorie experience.

“oldies but goody”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Huge portions of good food. The extensive menu has something for just about everyone at decent prices. Love the 60's music and memorabilia. The guacamole veggie burger is wonderful.

“Saturday Breakfast Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Well kept and well stocked with great food. Serving staff is very attentive to all of your needs. The Fifties atmosphere makes for a great dining experience. The TV screens with program segments from the Fifties and the information streams about the prices then are really neato.
