Classic style burger place with a retro fifties feel. Fries and shakes are awesome. There are also a few salad options. Although the line can get long, service is quick. All our food was great. Fun place for a quick burger meal.

There is a drive thru, however, going inside is half the experience with the cool memorabilia that they have there. It is like stepping back to the 1950's.

I have seen dogs on a leash there. Shade is a premium as the table umbrellas are the only source.
