“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Love to have the 1950s experience here. Several family members love the burgers and shakes. I love the taco salad and quesadilla. Children's menu is a lot of food and a good value. We always bring visiting family and friends here and never leave disappointed.

“Burgers and fries - oh, my!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2011

Great burgers, fries, onion rings. Also have huge mexican burritos, etc. Great old "soda shop" atmosphere. Play looped tapes of Andy Griffith, Leave it to Beaver, etc. Great nostalgia & the food ain't bad either!

“Big Daddy Burger, nuff said!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

When I ordered the Big Daddy I was not prepared for the mountain of a burger that was served but I rolled up my sleeves grabbed a bunch of napkins and dug in! What a great burger! I ordered it with fried onion and along with the piping hot fresh french fries I was in burger heaven! This is the consummate small town throwback burger and everything else joint. The Owner's in the back making sure every plate comes out great with huge portions, you will NOT go hungry here! Even the side salad was big and, let me report, with very fresh ingredients served with style. My wife was a little more restrained than I and order the chicken breast with new potatoes, chicken was tender and juicy with a very nice marinade and sauce, the new potatoes were oven roasted just right. A great go to choice any night of the week!
