“Old style car hop place - take the kids!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Old style. You dine in your car and a car hop comes out and puts your food on the window of your car. But not only is this fun and Historic, but dirt cheep. But........the burgers, shakes are great, especially for the price. GET THE RELISH ON THE BURGER, I don't like relish but here, its good. Don't believe me, get some on the side and put it on a piece of the burger - they compliment each other!

“Drive in”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

This is great for a cheap bite out. I like the sauces on the burger and that they serve you in your car.

“It is a legend around here.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I love this place. Potato Teezers are the best. Fast service. They take credit cards but paying cash is easier...
