Had a burger, rings, and shake. Shakes fresh made from real ice cream -- rich and creamy. Rings batter-dipped (my preference).

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.

After a long hot day out in Devils Garden I thought I'd better eat before driving back to Reno with no services for about 100 miles. Wasn't super hungry but when the food came I had no problem with my appetite. Burgers were very good,...More

Stopped in for lunch while doing a little shopping around Alturas. Burgers were fresh and very tasty. Fries were excellent I think they may fry them 2 times because they came out crispy on the outside and nice and tender in the inside. My husband...More
