Great lunch spot. Get here early. Have burger (I’ll go ahead and recommend the Thunder Road) and fries, take a stroll around the duck pond, then sneak home for a nap. You’re welcome.

The Burger here is ground fresh and it is really good quality. Three of us all ordered a burger and each was impressed. The only downside was the parking lot was full the night we went. That's a good sign.
