In business since the 1950's, this is still a fun burger/sandwich joint. McDonalds and Wendy's can't put this little gem out of business because the burgers are better here. The food is very tasty, the table service is speedy and the people are very friendly....More

I have ate here several times. They keep their tradition on food quality and you just can not forget the train. Every season has a different train. I recommend this classic establishment to everybody.

I felt like I stepped back in time. Great food and super service. Very small and shows it's age but that what makes it so fun.

This was our second visit and it was just as great as our first time. The onions burgers are hot and juicy. The singles are very filling - you have to be extra hungry to handle a double. Love the onion rings dipped in HOMEMADE...More

We love stepping back in time and visiting this "burger joint". I especially love their French fries and shakes. A must stop at Halloween time!

We read other reviews about this, so while on our camping trip to Mounds we gave it a try. My son was intrigued by the experience, and we both enjoyed ourselves. The interior has a few booths and a lunch counter, and carryouts are available....More

Nostalgic visit to place we used to go to in high school (60's). Quaint. Not a lot of seating space but worth the visit. Try the onion burger, it's awesome. They also have great shakes.

One of my favorite places to eat. Hamburger. Similar to Steak and Shake but better. Always fresh and salads are crisp

Keep your expectations low and you won[t be disappointed. Cute and quaint. If you want something simple with retro feel, this is the place. Four of us drive to Anderson to check it out. Only seating at the bar was available so we seated ourselves...More
