Cute little place. Right on Hwy 89.Chino has few good restaurants to choose from but this is a place with food that is good and home made too. Very small place, you'll miss it if you don't watch for it.

THANK YOU! We appreciate hearing from our customers. Our burgers are made with choice ground chuck, not ground beef. We feel that makes the best flavored burgers and our customers deserve the best!
