Just a drive thru has a feel of days gone by. Has an area to park and tables to get out and eat at. The Burgers are great, fries were awesome had some different flavor/coating on them. I wish we had one where we live. A must stop for a Burger and fries if you don't have one near you!!!

The sign said "Philly Cheese steak".....the person on the intercom said that promotion ended last week...and we forgot to take the sign down. I ordered a burger...when it came, and I paid for it....the cashier apologized that she did not have pennies to make change. How else are they screwing up behind the scenes...they have seen the last of me!!!!!

They have the best waffle cone.. they are big and for $1.99 an excellent deal.. Big Buford is fast and easy for dinner and the fries are the best..
