Stopped in to try the milkshake through the drive through. The chocolate shake was decent, not bad, not angels singing amazing either. The shake was ready fast and the server was very friendly. I may have to try something else on my next visit!

Great quality burger, and outstanding chocolate shake with very friendly service. The place was clean. We will be back when we pass through even though its 7 mins off the interstate.

Fried bolonga, egg and cheese sandwich. That right aways tells you you're dealing with a local place that knows what it's customers like. Though I stuck with a cheeseburger and onion rings which were awesome, things like that sandwich or pickle-o's make this a fun...More
