Went for breakfast on a recent weekend and met current owner who is quite nice - wish the meal was of similar quality. Sign near door requested wait staff, so we may give 2nd chance.

The food is OK. They are now serving breakfast which is a plus. Shakes are pretty good. I come every few months for a change in pace.

The burgers are fabulous!! And, the sweet potato fries are the best ever. It is casual and fun. It is also reasonably priced.

Grabbed two chicken salad sandwiches on croissants for take out. The sandwiches were delicious. I plan to try Ellis Soda Shoppe for breakfast based on local comments.
