Old fashioned dairy bar with counter seating and a few booths. Milkshakes are a specialty as well as great burgers. It's been here for many years and hasn't changed on the 25 years I've been around.

We stopped in tonight and the place looks barren. Decorations gone, a new ATM in the dining room, only one kind of soup on the board, no music playing, different fries (what???) and terrible service. We waited about 15 minutes and no one came to our table and it wan't even busy. We left and went some place else. Is there a new owner? Definitely different than the 30 years I have been coming here, since I was a kid!

This was one of my favorite places as a kid and it was always a treat to go here and get a cheeseburger and seasoned fries. I haven't been here in at least 25 years, and it is as good as I remember (although a little pricier). The fresh baked buns from the bakery next door are large, soft, and delicious and make the burgers and sandwiches even better! Burgers are just like old fashioned diners...fresh ground beef and homemade. Sloppy joes are fantastic, and the seasoned fries are out of this world...took me back to my childhood! Burgers seem expensive $5-7 depending on what you get on them. But when you figure a burger at fast food is almost the same price, and no where near as good, this is a value!

The place is tiny, with few tables, but has stools and counter service. Bright, spic and span clean atmosphere, friendly service. Just remember to bring your cash...no credit or checks accepted!

Kind of like Disney, it is expensive but you get what you pay for. Real strawberries in the Strawberry milk shake for instance.
