I am local and have eaten here many times. One of my favorite sandwiches is the turkey and avocado. Their homemade chips are great too. I have no complaints. We will be back again soon.

I ordered a buffalo chicken wrap. There was so much sauce on it, it pooled a 1/4 way up the wrap in the basket. Ridiculous amount, and totally unnecessary as it pretty tasteless with little flavor. Wife's soup was good, service friendly and quick. But as others have said, seat cushions were embarrassingly torn and dirty looking.

Had a late sandwich for lunch, so I wasn't overly hungry. Filled up my car at an Exxon across the street, and noticed their sign advertised a Thursday sandwich special--- a Reuben! Perfect, so I pulled across the street and went in. My wife, also having eaten a late lunch, only wanted a dessert. Vanessa came and took our orders,... More

I used to go to another Ham's so I was excited to find this one. Unfortunately, this place is so run down that lunch was not enjoyable. The food tasted good, but the seats are ripped and uncomfortable, the staff is unkempt, and it was just generally not a pleasant experience.

We tried to eat a late lunch around 4:00 this evening at Hams. We walked in and no one on staff was visible. We stood and waited and waited. Customers were eating but no one was waiting on them or seating people. Finally a man who was a customer at the Bar alerted someone in the back and a lady... More

The site is poorly maintained. Cracked tabletops don't look like they can be sanitized. Food is so-so. Service is cheerful.

Great burgers! They have Bison, Angus, turkey, and veggie. I like the make you're own where you can choose your bun, meat, and lots of toppings (I like the Angus on wheat with avocado.) I also really like the homemade chips and their ranch is the best! Waitresses are nice and service is good speed.

We stopped in for supper on our way to a Crawdads game. We were greeted and promptly seated. Our waitress was friendly and very efficient, she was working mostly by herself. It had been some time since we had eaten at a Ham's but the Famous Hams Chips were as good as we remembered, hot and crisp. I had the... More
