My husband, myself and our son stopped here last week. This was our 2nd time. The burger did not disappoint. It was cooked perfectly and the fries were great!

30.00 and change for two double cheeseburgers fries and sodas. Were already seated or would have walked down street. Good food and service but 30.00 for two Burger meals is steep. Would have to say bring your wallet and enjoy the food. Great atmosphere.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat before heading out to see the Holiday Lights at the Speedway. Reminded me of a 1950s/60s diner. Service was quick and the food was delivered hot and fresh. Fries were excellent!

Great little classic burger spot. Cool vintage lunch counter and red vinyl banquets. They stick to the basics... juicy burgers, golden fries and onion rings, and dozens of yummy shakes. We had lunch on a busy Saturday and had friendly and fast service.

Okay, here’s the secret - if you don’t see something on the menu (within reason) they’ll make it for you! Good quality and a fun atmosphere.

From the outside, this looks just like a typical little burger joint, but man oh man, what a treat! I got the Howlin' at the Moon burger with chili and sautéed onions on it, plus fries. It was AMAZING! Came out super hot! Everyone was...More

I can't say that it is the BEST burger in Bristol, it really depends on a persons likes and dislikes. There are other places in Bristol, like Five Guys and such that sell burgers as well. But, what I can say is that if you... More
