“More tradition than taste”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you lived here your whole life you are probably a regular at this drive in style buger joint.
I wasn't as impressed. My Ranch Hand burger, consisted of 2 small patties, similar to a Big Mac. Come with some skinny fries and a cup of fry sauce. Overall the fries were the highlight. I think the burgers are a bit on the dry side and to me seemed to need more sauce. Milk shake supplimented a somewhat "eh" lunch and actually was very good.
No shortage of dedicated customers. No inside seating so sit in your car or on one of 3 picnic tables outside. The drive up l ine runs right next to the outside seating so if a diesel truck pulls up, its noisy!
Try it once.

“A Must go if you are in Ontario!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a small hometown favorite. You want a good burger with fries this is the place. You may have to wait if it's lunch time but it will be worth it. Get an extra tub of sauce...it's the best and if you pour it over your burger it's the best!

Great food. Great value. There is usually a bit of a wait but that is a good sign of a great place to eat!

Great food at decent prices. Don't let the looks of the place scare ya. It's old, but it's the bomb. Great burgers, an the onion rings are made fresh every day.

“Best Burger Joint in Ontario! A must when home visiting!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

Ranch Hand with Fries. Extra fry sauce. Extra Large Scotch and Soda. Thank you.

Then go sit under a shady tree in the park across the street and tuck into a delicious two patty burger that will haunt you in it's deliciousness for all time.

It's burger heaven for less than 5 bucks.
