No frills, just plain good cooking. Burgers are large and very good. Fast service, really good price and lots of car memorabilia ( an d other stuff) on the walls to look at.

In a hurry just call in your order and be in and out in 3 minutes. One of the best burgers in town always cooked just the way you want it. I'm there atleast 4 times a month
