Stopped in and surprised to see minimal updates from 20 years ago. The mix was still delish along with sauteed onions but quality and thickness of burger definitley lacking. Fries were good

You just can't beat a locally made old fashioned cheeseburger with crinkle cut fries! The grilled cheese is excellent as well. Small amount of seating inside the restaurant but we usually get carry out. Fast, fresh and delicious!

Excellent little burgers, a little bigger than regular sliders, yet a little smaller than a regular sized hamburger. We got the specials of 6 hamburgers and 6 cheese burgers with a large fry and we were pleasantly surprised!!

You can eat lunch easily for $6 and a tip. Great all beef coneys and sliders. Hot french fries. Cold pop. Fast service, Usually friendly people eating at the counter...The wait staff have been there for ages and are fast and efficient. I can get in and out in 30 minutes or less if I have to.

If you are in the mood for sliders this is the place to go. I try and stop here whenever I am in the area. I love the paper wrapper for the burgers but the grease will quickly soak through the wrapper and the paper bag. Your car will smell great for hours after you are done eating. The place... More

so good and greasy, they can't wrap it typical paper. So tempting and so naughty for you that they put it in a plain brown bag. I get the 6 pack special cause, well, they are not huge and 5's just not enough. I love cheeseburgers, but no cheese on my sliders please. and don't forget to get a chocolate... More
