Litton's is a local restaurant known for great hamburgers and bakery items. Usually have a long wait so go early. Great for family with kids or couples.

Litton's Family restaurant is undoubtedly the best place for a cheeseburger, hamburger, or hotdog and fries. The homemade desserts are just wonderful and there are also daily specials. There is nothing bad on the menu.

Littons is known for their great hamburgers, and today was no disappointment. Awesome cheeseburger and fries. My only complaint is they don't use Dukes mayo, or Heinz ketchup! Other than that...it is a great meal!
