This was the perfect place for us to stop for take-out dinner on our way home from a trip to Connecticut. We arrived before 5:00 on a Sunday night, but were surprised that there were absolutely NO parking spaces left for our full-sized pickup and the parking situation was a giant free-for-all.. After waiting about 5 minutes, a miniscule spot opened up, but a lady in a huge SUV had decided she had waited long enough and tried to steal the spot from us. Lucky for us, our vehicle was bigger, and she did not argue but instead had to park on the road without the confrontation I was waiting for.
Once we got out of the truck, we noticed that parents were not watching their children and that I had almost run a 3 year-old down parking the car. I apologized to the father of the little boy, but couldn't help but wonder why the little kid was running around in the parking lot to begin with. Then I realized there were so many people watiing for their orders that there wasn't enought space to even stand and that people were actually milling around the customers who were seated and eating in the outdoor seating area. I felt sorry for those diners who had planned to stay and dine--their meals were definitely interrupted by the lack of square footage.
The quaint ordering system uses playing cards, so when your order is ready instead of yelling a name or number, you hear "ACE OF SPADES!!' or "SEVEN OF DIAMONDS" which we found to be a nice change. The milkshakes we ordered were thick and well worth the price---and never made it home. The burgers an onion rings were als excellent.
If you go, I recommend you arrived on an off hour (like in the middle of the afternoon) instead of before dinner like we did. I can't imagine trying to get dinner there at 6:00, what a nightmare.
