“A Nostalgic Malt Shop”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Really good wait staff at lunchtime. Food is yummy except the bottom of hamburger buns fall apart quick from juicy run off from meat and condiments. Gotta toast the buns longer. Great malts. Like the 1950s decor a lot.

“Don't know what the fuss is about”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Went there on a Sunday. Service was mediocre with the server sniffing like crazy and telling us she had a cold. If you like old, semi-run down soda parlor decor(our booth had duct tape and no padding left) then you'll like this place.

Burgers were just okay, nothing great and not that big. Pretty pricey for what you get. For less money you get a much better burger at Five Guys.

For what it cost for the three of us we could have eaten at a diner. We won't be going back.

“Small town eatery”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Throwback - get what you see. Just like places we ate growing up in a small town. Casual - friendly and helpful staff. Liked the burgers and chicken. Had good onion rings and great "real" shakes. Ice cream selection looks good - were too full and will have go back to try them another time.

“A fun Greasy Spoon Restaurant.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This Hamburger joint has been around for years. It has a dedicated following but I find that their signature hamburger very greasy. The meat that they use must have a very high fat content but like I said, they have a following. If you want to try an old fashioned Hamburger Joint, this is the place. You be the judge if you love the burgers or not.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Had dinner with friends there tonight and was really pleased. It was my first time there. The decor is super cute and so bright and cheerful. We were greeted prompted by our very friendly waitress and the food came pretty quickly. My cheeseburger and onion rings were delicious...best onion rings I've ever had. Looking forward to going back!
