The food in this place was so good. The burger was fresh and the fries were fantastic. The workers were so friendly. The 6 dollar cheeseburger combo is worth the price. Their sweet tea was made just right.

Hot dos we're ok. Attended Morganton TGIF and no vendor for regular food. Easy access across the street. Like the way they split the hot dog but not a lot of toppings included. Onion rings were good and very hot.

We had heard really positive things about this restaurant and looked forward to trying it. Our hamburger buns were cool (below room temperature), the cheese fries were not even hot enough to melt the cheese at all, the staff put the tea urns away about...More

This is my favorite burger joint in Morganton! Fresh, hot, and always delicious! If you're in town give it a try. Also has great milk shakes.
