Clean place, friendly staff. Burgers are made fresh to your order, so it takes a couple minutes to get it, but it's very good. Prices are OK. You can get good deals with snack packs. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

As with most places, fresh food needs to be consumed immediately after being served, at this place as well. Stay and eat the fries here. They are crispy outside, soft inside and very good. The custard is very good as well and if you have...More
