I came there not expecting much but was surprised by the variety of the menu. I had the chopped salad and really like it. I also had a great shake. My nephew had the burger with cheese fries and loved them too.

Beef-a-Roo is a long time favorite in the are for great burgers, roast beef, and fries. The season salt is a must for the fries. Always had great service in any of the Beef-a-Roo locations
