We have heard good things about this place and decided to try them out. We were not disappointed. The food was great, my son and I both had the mushroom burger, and my spouse had the burger with ham. We ordered a drink and fries which was an additional 3.00. The basket of fries were abundant. We will definitely be... More

This place has lines out the door that make it look inviting. We were very disappoiinted. The hamburger was okay but nothing special. The service was terrible especially for an order-at-the counter place. Took too long to get the order plus the carmel milk shake tasted like somethimg else and had chunks in it. When first asked about it staff... More

If Elvis was playing on the juke box one would think they have stepped back in time. Best burger value in the Pacific Northwest. If you don't think so try getting a seat during any regular meal time. Burgers shakes/malts are great. Expect a line (most good places have one) but it moves really fast and don't be confused since... More

One of my kids declared this place as having the best Peanut Butter Shakes ever! They also enjoyed the chicken strips, cheeseburgers and fries.

This is a fun burger to visit, especially in the summer!! Get there early in the summer, as there usually is a line.

Came up on November 5th and it was closed. Has yellow tape all around it. Had my taste buds set on a burger and fries. Was totally disappointed. And sad.

The sweet potato fries are great, too. However, I'd skip the fish (halibut) and chips. Their fries are good, but the fish was overcooked - will not order them again. I did inform the waitress so they may correct this in the future. My husband loved the Sharlie chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries. The portions are generous.

Great service and the food was really good. My husband enjoyed his burger and I really liked the grilled chicken. Best part was being able to eat outside and enjoy the view of the lake.

We stopped in McCall on our way north to White Bird for a late lunch. Right after Labor Day they shut at 7 PM. The service is very pleasant and the sweet potato fries were very nice. The burgers are good, but not great. They are inexpensive and the patties are thin. My husband enjoyed his onion rings.

Thank EveSp
