Live their double cheeseburgers and my fave is the chuck wagon sandwich and the seasoned fries! So good! It's a little off the beaten path but very much worth the small effort to get there

We decided to try Engle's for a change of pace. The restaurant can be a challenge for the handicapped. There is a step-up to enter, step-down to exit. The interior is very nice and clean - including restrooms. You order and pick-up at the counter, and pay when ordering. Seating is diner-style booths. The service was quick and friendly. The...

Great burgers and fries! A nice place to drive up to and have lunch. They have a daily special for lunch or dinner daily.

Roadside has been around for many years; when I ate here as a child in the early '90s, it was already decades old. Age aside, though, Roadside is just as good as it's ever been. Standard fare for "local restaurants" in the South - burgers and sandwiches, fries and onion rings, dinners from hamburger steak to fried fish.

Seating is barely adequate, but the service is friendly and fast - you pick up your food at the serving counter. Their burgers are far better than chain restaurants and they pile on the fries. Haven't tried any of their 'Dinner Specials' but they look good with ample portions.

The cheeseburger is the best in town and at a great price. Milkshakes are very good as well. Love the fries with brown salt (you can get them without it if you don't like it. The weekly special is also a very good deal. The chicken strip dinner is our favorite :-)

Recently I overheard two raft guides raving about the burgers at Engle's Road Side Restaurant. Raft guides are connoisseurs of good food, cheap prices and large portions.Today John, Dave and I sent out for cheeseburgers, Some all the way, some not. The burgers were prepared correctly. Hot, juicy and very large. They were outstanding. And the price,unbelievable! $2.85 for a... More
