This place is just about as "local" as you can get! We went there for lunch last week after a friend told us about there great burgers. We were not disappointed! The burgers were thick, juicy, and full of flavor! We also had the fried pickles. They were a little different from your normal, run-of-the-mill fried pickle in that they had a slight sweetness to them. They were great, though!
The only draw back to the place is that they have signs all over warning you to lock your car, hide your valuables, etc. So, as a woman, I probably wouldn't go there alone at night. It was fine for my husband, son, and I for a mid-week lunch though. I didn't feel unsafe until I read the signs, but even afterward (when I started looking around more), everything was okay.
Bottom line: great food, friendly service, nice "local" feel, but maybe check your surroundings if you go there, especially at night).
