It was an average meal. Nothing special. Over-priced in my opinion, as I imagine all the places in downtown Belton are.

This is one of your everyday downtown diners. A lot of vintage feeling items all around. The service and onion rings were the highlight. The food overall was average, but if you are looking at antiques it's a good place to take a break

Very nice waitress. Has a lot of character. The food was not that great, but maybe we came on an off day. The ice cream and atmosphere was worth it.

We weren't sure what to expect, but we went in with open minds. We were not disappointed, a good Old fashion malt shop. The burgers were good and the service was friendly.

Very limited breakfast menu, staff were okay. Small dining area with no atmosphere, just a quick meal. We were hoping for small town cafe feel but got the "out-of-towner" feel and nothing special. Food was okay for breakfast.

If you are looking for a sinfully good burger at a good price, this is the place for you. The service is wonderful and the customers are treated like family.
