Popular local burger and shake stop. We ate a burger, burrito, and grilled cheese sandwich along with three different shakes - all were very good. Staff was very friendly. Would recommend.

Stopped along Hwy 395 for a late lunch, and we were hungry! We both had veggie burgers and shared a large order of fries - all were delicious. Good iced tea and horchatas also. Too full for ice cream desert - darn.

For a good burger that's made fast, stop at Harolds. It may be a bit more expensive than your average frosty mill burger but it's the same great taste!
