We make this a must stop every visit, the kids love the chicken strips and fries with fry sauce and of course you need to buy t shirts

When I think of the neighborhood drive in burger and fries joint (think Happy Days and Archie, minus the roller skates and jukebox), this place had the food to back it up. The burger was perfectly built with a little mayo, chopped lettuce and chopped onion. The cheese didn't spill over the bun and it was not sloppy or hard... More

Chilly spring stop for lunch. We decided to order and then eat inside the small tent rather than in the car since there were outdoor heaters. Still a bit chilly but bearable. Burgers were fresh Fries Ann's onion rings crisp and tasty. I tried a BLT. Bacon was delicious with a generous serving on the sandwich. Will definitely stop again.

Must thing to do in Chelan. Good old fashion burgers plus an expanded menu (hotdogs, fish, chicken). Great FRESH shake with a good variety.

What is the magical fry dust they use in their bucket of fries, sharing is caring but not when it tastes this darn good. Buy one for yourself and eat it secretly before you rejoin your family on your vacation. Remember to wipe your mouth or they will see where you were. The burgers are spectacular, I eat it only...

A popular hamburger joint in Chelan. They have a walk up window or drive thru. Outside seating, some covered others not with an unobstructed view of the lake. Typical menu for a burger joint. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger with onion rings. Burger juicy, gooey good. Onion rings plentiful, crispy and nicely battered. The food worth the extra calories. Service... More

Best place in town for a milkshake - almost any flavor combination you can think of. They can be busy, but they turn around the orders quickly and deliver some good burger-joint type food.
