“Good burger, run down place”

They make a good burger here. But, the service is very slow. The restaurant needs some updating. My wife liked the fried chicken, but again may need to allow some time. Worth a shot, but it is not as good as some other local burger joints.

Doesn't have the notoriety of the Heart Attack Diner,; but, if you are interested in down home, melt in your mouth (and hands!) burgers, this is the place for you. There burgers are obscenely good as are the sides. Fish and chicken available too, but the burgers are the draw. For all the transplants, forget In and Out - this is it. Don't get your cholesterol checked afterwards.

Really good burgers and fries...my favorite burger joint in Columbia!! Reminds me of the drive-in restaurant we went to when I was a kid.

They have a varied menu that I've not been disappointed by YET! Burgers R great! (I prefer mine very well done-just not burned) They cook them just as requested. Awesome Chef & grilled chicken salads...2 big for the normal person! Big chicken fingers, old timey crinkle cut fries. The MOST awesome chocolate shakes & cones around! I eat there almost daily. Never disappointed!!!

The hospitality was great..the Burgers are fantastic! They remind me of little Mom & Pop off the road place--I can remember going to as a child...The burgers was a mile high loaded with fresh tomato-diced onion-the hamburger buns was toasted-- excellent.. The price reasonable... -I plan on bringing my family back... You will not be disappointed..!!
