I have eaten here since I was in college-almost 40 years ago-and I ate here recently on a trip back home. Some places deal with inconsistency--NOT this one! It hasn't changed in a full generation! But everything tasted as wonderful as I remembered it. Good sandwiches and fries are served up in a basket. I still love the big root beer floats-they're huge and delicious.
All generations should find something to please their palates and prices are very reasonable. A family can afford to eat here.
I have always been irritable with the line one has to stand in to wait to be seated, however. But I guess that shows how popular the place is!! The line moves rather well but don't be surprised if you have to wait about 30-45 minutes at some hours of the day. Perhaps choose an "off" time to expedite the process.
The atmosphere is very quaint--do NOT dress up. In the summer, I almost found the A/C to be too much and at my age, that's unusual--bring a sweater for those sensitive to A/C.
No outdoor seating. Adequate parking lot in front. A bit out of the way on a side street--travelers should perhaps use a GPS device to help with this. But it's worth looking for it!
