Hamburgs made to order, everything fresh. Eric's was old school, not just great food but great decor.

For breakfast or lunch this is a great and affordable stop. Fast service and hot food! Very friendly wait staff and don't worry about the wife and kids. Management here does not put up with shenanigans! Want a quick meal that is easy on the budget and taste good too? This is the place!

We have been there twice. Both times the burgers were juicy and tasty. The coleslaw is also good (there must be sugar in it because it has a nice sweet taste). The locals love it too. Give it a try, but go early, as he usually closes around 2 pm. We want to try his breakfast next, which I heard... More

One of the best cheeseburgers I've ever had. Good breakfast options, as well. I would definitely recommend their burgers!

tasty grease burgers, crispy fries, good condiment selection but it is very noisy, the booths are too crammed together and very hard for ingress and egress

Dusty toys line the shelves above the booths. The menu is up above the cashier and you order like at a fast food joint! You get your own drink (Styrofoam, as usual among ppl who do NOT care about the planet). Food was fast but not tasty! Fries were just hard, and no flavor, burger was impossible to eat it... More
