We had a group of 6. Wish I could remember our waitress' name. She was from Bulgaria and was fantastic! Great burgers, great fries made fresh from potatoes, great Apple pie. Even had sweet tea! Inexpensive with good menu. Free parking, great service.

Stop by, you won't regret it. Hamburgers are really good with fresh made buns. Apple pie is good too.

This place is clean and unique. It is like a 50's diner. We had a nice reasonably priced breakfast. We were staying at The Suites at Hershey. This was close.
