Get a fry basket to share and a burger each or else you'll over spend. It's good food but you could easily spend way too much

This place is an Ellensburg institution and has been here since I was a little kid. Classic drive-in food. I especially like to get a bacon cheeseburger and a banana shake. They also have gluten free options for those who need them.

A lot of hype for a traditional burger and fries. Nothing special about it at all. It is a nice, old spot near CWU campus, but was very underwhelming. Also, I thought their signature tarter sauce was disgusting. It is a whipped tarter sauce, which...More

I love eating here! Reminds me of college and I love the fries. Got the special (cheese burger, fries, drink). One of these days I will step outside of the box and get something different...maybe! :)

Amazing? Maybe not. But good? Yes. Two adults and two kids ate here for about $35.00. Wait?!?! $35.00 you say? Well, this included two kids burgers, two full-sized bacon cheeseburgers, fries as well as onion rings, and all four upgraded to milkshakes instead of soda....More

Have heard "it's the best in town" for the four years I've lived here. Finally went last night. Not all it's cracked up to be! Mushroom burger has canned mushrooms! Eeewww. Bun was all smashed and burger was very salty!.

The food is alright. It's not great but it's not bad either. Typical burger and fries. I've had better BUT I've also had worse.

We stopped here after reading how this was rated one of the best burgers in the Northwest. We loved our burgers, but I thought their fries were what should be earning awards. Mmmm. We sat outside at a picnic table. Not much ambiance, but good...More

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.
