Absolute best burger in the world. Their burgers are 1A and The full ride at grad school in Springfield Missouri would be 1b. This is a must stop. You will not have a better Burger anywhere.

This is a no frills establishment! You go inside and order and either take it to go or sit outside at one of the picnic tables. But you're not going to find a better burger in the surrounding area. Top quality meat, fresh toppings,buns and...More
