I try to order it with tomato and lettuce,... More

Great prices for some really good food. $5 plates are a good deal (burger/sandwich + 2 sides + drink) and just individual items are just the right price.

My children love the milk shakes, the food is average food, nothing to shout about. We each got different meals great for young kids , and college kids on a budget.

The food is good and cheap. I don't care who you are, you will find something on the menu to like, but especially the milk shakes and burgers.

The burger was overcooked and tasted like it had been sitting around in the steamer for a long time. The fries were tasteless and had no salt.

I, had seen a couple of these locations and was curious about the food. I had a hot dog. I truly think I need to go get another dog for almost anywhere else to erase the memory of that one. I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.
