Went for lunch, try the Specialty burger Big Kahuna ! WOW! Home made patty and fries, delicious. Decor date from the 60-70's, juke box, fun to travel back in time.

What a great surprise! A long counter with stools. Booths, a jukebox. Like going back to the 50's. It is in a wonderful few block area iN downtown Sackville with other interesting shops and places to visit.
