Cruiser's is not a franchise fast food. Menu is hamburgers, chilli dogs, my favorite Butcher Block, onion rings, fries and another local favorite chilli. Drive thru is very courteous, efficient and quick. Out door seating and small indoor seating available.

For drive thru and carry out only. But i must say they offer great selection, fast service, decent prices, and best tasting burgers in Effingham! It may be a little off the Interstate, but worth the journy across town to have a meal this good.

This is the best place in town to get a burger. All the locals eat here. Drive thru or carry out only. We always stop at Cruiser's when we come "home" to visit!

The food here is good and at a great price. The two double cheese burgers for $5 after 2pm is a good deal. Just wish they were open later in the evening.
