THE best fries in the world; best with white vinegar. Great creamies during the Summer months as well as outside tables to relax.

Burgers and Frys [sic] are delicious. Place is seriously old skool. Amazing place for unusual people watching!

I hate reading glowing reviews of a place then discovering $10 later that it's nothing special. Really small unimpressive burgers, extra charge for things as simple as lettuce and tomato, and brown gravy instead of my-preference cream gravy to go with the fries. One and done for me.

It has been years, but still it's great! Affordable, fast, good quality, awesome fries! Love that they haven't changed to old parlor style decor. It can get a little chilly if you sit too close to the door when there busy, but not horrible. Whether you want a burger or salad it's all good!

First time visiting here even tho I lived in the area years ago. Came at 530pm on a thurs night. There was a line but given the previous reviews, I knew it'd go quickly.

I think it's the classic atmosphere that draws the crowds. If your into 1950's diner style this is your lunch place to eat. The menu is burgers dogs etc with options to customize, yes the fries are excellent. Food is fresh and always made to order. Great for kids, fast service

If I could give a 3 1/2 I would. The chicken fingers were delicious, the atmosphere is classic American diner. Food is better than McDonald's, but the fried chicken was hard

1950s diner food at 2017 prices. We've tried almost everything, and everything tastes a little like grease. The fries... er... sorry, FRYS, are tremendous, and worth eating on their own. Also great ice cream in the summer, but I can't recommend the outdoor atmosphere that goes with it. It's mostly parking lot, with a little eating area in the back... More
