I still miss those skinny fries of yesteryear. The prices make it seem not quite the value that it was years ago.

Simply put: if you visit the Russellville area, you must stop here for lunch/dinner or at least take something to go if you're passing through. Best burgers in the area, great milkshakes, great fries.... It's a classic restaurant and has an old-school atmosphere to it....More

What's Burger has been around a long time. You get plenty of food. The only problem is their beef patties are so thin you can almost see through them. It's also a bit spendy.

The question is "Where's the beef?" The hamburger was the thinnest piece of meat I have ever seen! The cheese on the burger was cold and never melted. What does that say about temperature of the meat?? Fries were ok, nothing special!! Milk shake was...More
