This is supposed to be a non-chain authentic burger place and, in fact, does its double burgers like the Big Boy chains did in the 50's and 60's but the food is poor. Onion rings, with a nice crumbed breading are fine but the burger meat is tough and has a slight warmed-over taste like they are being held in a steam table until put on the bun with the shreds of lettuce, onion sauce and fairly glue-y cheese.

Opened in the 50's, this place is what Sonic tries to be, only better! Fries are so-so but the burgers and onion rings are fantastic

We found this restaurant on the internet while traveling through Ohio. It's only 2 minutes off the interstate and well worth it! The food is delicious - burgers, fries, cole slaw, shakes/malts, etc. The kids enjoyed having to order the food at the table on the telephone. Service was excellent. Will definitely return if ever in Chillicothe again!

Good place to get away from the monotony of fast food chains. Staff is friendly and attentive. Prices reasonable. Good food.

The food is really good and the milkshakes have just enough goodness to love them and the staff is great and they are really quick and never eat in your car
