This is a burger joint, plain and simple. But, a darned good one! These are the burgers I looked forward to when traveling with my parents in the late 1950s. They're not wagon-wheel sized, and they don't come slathered in exotic sauces or smothered in...More

Very good fries, onion rings, and burgers. Hot, large servings, and fresh. Can't go wrong. There's a drive through and walk-up that is popular, but my buddy Alex and I also sit down and eat. Seats are comfortable enough. The location is close to CWU...More

You cannot go wrong here. If you want a burger (and fries) you will not be disappointed. No frills, just great priced and tasty grub. If you find a flaw, it would be a feat as this place sells quality valued well above the price...More

Campus U-tote-Em has the best burgers in town. Locally owned for more years than I can count. We came in 75 and it was going great then. When people come home they always have to make this a stop.

One of the top 5 places I believe in the State to get a burger, the Dagwood burger basket is the best in my opinion. Eaten there a lot over the years, now that I'm older I avoid fast food more, but still love to...More

A great place to stop for some old fashioned burger love. The fries were wonderful. The service had a smile, and we left with a smile. They hooked us up with a the campus burger special...yum. We will be returning for this quality tastiness.

They do burgers right. They have lots of great choices. Onion rings are great, too. French fries could be better but they aren't bad.

You would have to ask Rick or Cindy about. Though it is easy to make. Real Mayo, mustard, sweet relish, and finely chopped onion. Start small and build to taste.
