We like to try new places, but this was a mistake. We ordered a couple of bowls of chili to start and that was enough. It was all water and very little flavor. The place needs a lot of maintenance. Ugly old carpet. Bad restrooms....More

Food was good, restaurant needs a refresh. I would like to see them replace the carpet, update the booths and add some lights.

The hamburgers tastes kind of bland, the place could use a good scrubbing - everything just had a dirty worn out look to it. The only 2 reasons that it received a 3 rating is because they carry Pepsi products, and the fries weren't bad.

My son and I stopped by here on a trip to Lexington. If we're in the area this is our place for a quick pick me up. The Burger's are a great deal and the Waffle fries are delicious.
