“Great shakes”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great food - same owner(s) for many years.. You can tell the set the bar a little higher than the typical drive-inn/diner. Tastes like a real burger, not a soy onion mix frozen/thawed patty.

This is a small country drive-in type restaurant. Very good food, though.

“Only 1 McDonalds for me!!”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I have been going back for 40 years. I am 46. Great famiy business. Always consistant. Everyone always very friendly- even though they usually know most of us who live out toward Philpot or Whitesville. Great catfish, burgers, steak. Can still get a cherry RC with crushed ice- my favorite!! Unique and at the same time- makes me feel young because it feels like home.
