The burgers, pizza, and everything else there is delicious. The people that work there are extremely friendly. We go there at least once a week

Don't let the appearance fool you! Yes, it looks like you might want to keep going. I'm telling you, "Don't". While it does not have a waitstaff, there are friendly and helpful counter persons to help you select just the items for a delicious lunch or dinner. The menu has a large variety to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.... More

The place is an experience. You know you are in a no frills dive when you drive up and might even be tempted to drive past. Don't. The food is affordable and memorable. We had the double rocket burger and it was served on a pizza sheet. The whole family ate one and ever since they have been begging to... More

The menu used to be HUGE here, but it was cut back some time ago. They had all sorts of choices and it unfortunately must not have worked out for them. They still have a very large menu with all sorts of burgers as well as pizza. Their claim to fame is the Monster Burger which can feed several. Don't... More
