Great Food, sit down and wait on you. Not a topical fast food environment. Friendly service and most definitely would come back again.

In a town with so much faster food I am glad we have this as an option. No matter what the food is good and you always know the root beer is great. Love the root beer freezes!

hamburgers and french fries are average but the fried cheese curds are exceptional. "Real 100% Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese (they know their cheese) lightly breaded and golden-fried. Pop ‘em, dip ‘em, stretch ‘em. Taste perfection." Except at peak lunch and dinner times, you can get out...More
