I have been coming to this restaurant since I was knee high to a grasshopper. The Hamburgers are the best with Cecils famous sauce and the fries and milkshakes are awesome too. I also highly recommend the pie. Great service.

My wife and I popped in with my nephew today for lunch. We very much enjoyed our hot sandwiches and the courteous service. The only things sub-par were the pies, but we had a great experience overall.

I get lunch to go here probably at least 2-3 times a week. They know me by voice on the phone now. They've always been friendly, and the burgers are great. This is a good old-fashioned diner, but NOT a "greasy spoon". Value is excellent....More
