The store is neat place resembling an old small country store. We got hamburgers and shakes. The food was good, but nothing extra special. The owner was very friendly, but I do understand how some may have experienced poor service. One of the young ladies...More

the owners name, she was amazing and so wonderful with my 27 year old mentally handicap son. The food was great as well as the service and friendly atmosphere. I'd recommend it to everyone and I will be making a lot of return visits.
