We stopped here with a group of girls on the way up to camp. I ate a delicious double cheeseburger. Maybe it was too much for me but it was worth it because it was one of the best cheeseburgers I've ever eaten. I'd go...More

What a gem! 50's style Family diner for burgers, fries and other grill food. Cheap prices and excellente food. We will be stopping here again on the way to or home from Canada fishing trips.

I like the busy vibe, the casual seating, the reasonable price and....the darn good burger and malt and onion rings. This is throwback place from the 50's - 60's. Burger is meaty and the malts are thick and tasty. The counter service is fast paced,...More

Response from thephan | Reviewed this property |
