This is a wonderful restaurant my family has been coming to for generations. Their burgers are amazing and perfectly cooked. I got the bleu cheeseburger and thoroughly enjoyed it. This place has a homey atmosphere and has an amazing snickers ice cream pie.

The food is fine and the onion rings are a must to have. Can be difficult to park in the lot and weekends are busy.

Ok burger place but not much more. The burger with rye was too sweet (bread) and the beef didn't have much taste. Also they didn't have the beer we ordered and the replacement came half way through dinner. Dessert ice cream with snickers was really...More
