“A local favorite!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This restaurant is on its second or third generation of family ownership, therefore the recipes are the same and the tastes and quality remain. Slide up to the bar or nestle in a comfy booth. The servers are attentative and chatty in this diner-style restaurant.

Yes, a piece or two of toast, a large burger, gravy (and caramelized onions should your heart desire) is this restaurant's claim to fame. The restaurant has outlived a tornado, a flood, and a town of change, but it remains. If you're not into the big burger scene, try their awesome baked potato (ask for butter on the side or they'll put a half-stick butter on it for you), their simple salads with homemade garlic dressing (it's AWESOME).

If you're into trying local, historical restaurants while visiting a community, this is the place for you!

“Hot Hamburger with gravy over all!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Home of the hot hamburger (aka "heart attack on a plate"). They are delicious and you've got to give them a try at least once! Their steaks and regular hamburgers are really good too.

“Not for me!”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

There were five in our party and we found the service to be very slow although there was an abundance of employees standing around the counter. The establishment is old and run down with no atmosphere at all. I ordered a pork chop, and was surprised when it was brought out all alone on the plate with no sides or anything. It was overcooked and hard and I couldn't even finish it, not that I wanted to. My aunt did not like the "gravy over all" on her fries and burger and stated that she would NEVER go there again! We were meeting friends there, otherwise, I think we would have chosen another place.

“Good meat!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

It's an old building and not really dirty but not sparking clean either. The food is always good though. Kind of a Mom & Pop place that the local's know about but have kept a secret. The garlic salad dressing is the bomb!
