“Nostalgic Barbecue Hamburgers and Shakes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Open Pit Barbecued Hamburgers are quite delicious. Served in a nostalgic atmosphere. They offer a large variety of shakes and old fashioned malts. I would have no problem saying that they serve the best barbecued hamburgers anywhere. Prices are not bad either. Eat in or takeout services are available.

“food was good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Not really the best ambiance, rather unpleasant as a Diner, but food was very good, a very well prepared Ceasar's salad and burger at a low price . Service was very attentive. I did not like the table set up and the place looked rather tired and 'oily'. Go there for the food and the good service.
