Excellent old fashioned burgers with just the right amount of grease accompanied by great French fries. Drive through is not fast food speed but that is due to them making each order when ordered, not ahead of time. Worth the wait.

Wonderful hamburgers and awesome chili dogs. The unique ice cream "flavor of the day" are very interesting.

This place is awesome. Local place with super fresh burgers, fries, and fresh made ice cream of the day specials. A must try if you are in the area! They also employ a great team of local young people who provide great service.

We have been here a few times, more often than not for frozen custard and have never been disappointed. The burgers are juicy and the portions are generous. This is a MUCH better fast food option than just about any burger chain you are going to find, defiantly better than the major ones that have been around for decades.

Never thought it was that hard to make a great burger. Just need good fresh ingredients (all of them), a clean store, and a time and cost effective delivery. This place has it. About 5 bucks for a righteous half pound burger cooked the way you want, and a couple bucks more for excellent fries and a soda. Nothing fancy... More

Last two times I have eaten here, the burger wasn't even cooked on the inside, was so worried one of my kids would get sick, they didn't, but that's like playing Russian roulette. No thanks! Service was slooooow, so had plenty of time to cook the burger.

The burgers were delicious. The ice cream a wonderful treat. And the service was friendly and quick...well, as quick as can be when they make your burger fresh. This is certainly not your regular fast food place! I'd recommend it when you are in the area. If you are planning a drive from Front Royal through Shenandoah National Park, include... More

I've heard people talk of greasy burgers here and keep coming to check. The fresh burgers I'm served are not, but they are juicy. They are very tasty, as are the fries. The fun part of our meal this evening was the flavor of the day soft serve cone. Fresh waffle cones only made them better!

The burger was over done in my opinion and really not any better than dairy queen burgers; in fact the dairy queen I've had before was much better. The service was good and otherwise fair place to eat.
