The food is OK. They are now serving breakfast which is a plus. Shakes are pretty good. I come every few months for a change in pace.

The burgers are fabulous!! And, the sweet potato fries are the best ever. It is casual and fun. It is also reasonably priced.

Grabbed two chicken salad sandwiches on croissants for take out. The sandwiches were delicious. I plan to try Ellis Soda Shoppe for breakfast based on local comments.
