Visting the area for a wedding and wanted a burger after the drive. They had lots of options and a build your own option. The sweet potato fries were delicious and the burgers were cooked perfectly. They also have fountain sodas from local brands.

If you are in the mood for a good old fashioned Hamburger and fries this is the place. I also live the Hotchix wrap. Kind of small inside and always busy but it is well worth it.

It is a converted house with fairly limited seating. If I remember correctly they did have moveable tables. I think you should call them if your group is more than seven or eight.
