This place is a trip. You might get "barked" at. They only take cash. They are open when they want to be and yet there is a following. Good greasy cheap eats and the owner has a kind heart, even though she often displays a different persona. A local joint that is a part of our fabric.

After informing me that the only beverage they had avail was a rootbeer float she took my order. Then as I started relaying to her orders from the... More

I stop here when traveling through Crestline and usually order a Root Beer Shake and a side of onion rings as they are perfect together. Liz is a fixture here and a kick. Give it a try!

I am a nurse who visits my patients in their homes. About 6 months ago I had a $10 lunch and sat at a small table and caught up on my charting for two hours. Admittedly, that is a long time, but they were not busy at all and I didn't ask for anything the whole time I was there.... More

Little roadside stand that serves up fast food. Looks like it has been here for quite a while but I was pleasantly surprised at how good their quarter pounder was.

What happened to "The customer is always right?" The owner/manager, a true charm school dropout, changed my order on me! But it was certainly delicious!

sign said open at 11:30, we got there and at 11:35 I believe the owner finally showed up. Told us to wait a minute while she opens up, we said fine and waited. About 5 minutes later a local man walked up and she ran us off saying she was not opening and helped the second man who walked up.... More

small A frame building. Don't blink or you'll miss it. Recommended by locals, did not disappoint. Best when it's not cold outside, as it is a take out burger joint.

Limited menue but the burgers are good. There is nothing fance about this place. They are often out of this or that and the owner is trying to sell it. It is popular with the kids on their way home from school and an alturnative to McDonald's.

This quirky little place looks like it's been there since the drive in days of the 50's. It's a tiny little place but it's all part of it's charm. The owner is quite a character and the food is delicious. It's a cash only place to don't whip out your plastic. The burgers are great and it's location is right... More
