It looks like a take away that you would find in a back water town. But by surprise this place put's out some of the best burgers ive had had for a while. However if your expecting great service forget it. It is just a grab and run Take away.

We were once loyal customers - until the shop closed down and re-opened... not only has the food gone down hill, but the service isnt anywhere near as friendly anymore..

Fresh cut chips and excellent burgers make this a very popular chip shop for the locals. They are happy to alter the menu if there is something you would like that isn't on there.

Pulled in after a long drive with the kids who were starving only to wait five minutes to have my order taken. Might seem reasonable but four people working, one cooking, one on the phone....two others not sure but not serving me. Waited ten minutes for the chips which is reasonable only to get home, open the paper to find... More
