One of my favorite places to eat. Always clean and great service. Loaded cheese fries are my favorite. They have delicious daily specials.

The food is great! Burgers here are well-known and popular with the "Poolroom Burger" and other versions being the most popular! There are many other choices available as well for those not looking for a burger adventure as well.

We love this place. We eat here about once a week. I love their homemade vegetable soup and salad. My hubby loves their chopped steak. We have ordered just about everything on the menu and everything is delicious. We really love their hot dogs and the homemade sauce.
