Turns out both the junior and the regular are the same huge size. The regular is two patties. Delicious! If you get there late, you have to wait--outside. There is no waiting area. I wanted a milkshake but those are apparently served next door, which during off-season closes at 6pm, a little early for a dessert place? The pass to... More

Best Burger in town! Had the buffalo burger w/blue cheese and it was to die for! So good. The fries are so tasty! They don't serve hard cider so the waitress was so nice and let me bring my own. Of course I walked across the street to get it!! The waitress was darling! So sweet and down to earth!... More

We had the best burgers and fries here! We were staying in Jackson and came over for the day. The burgers were some of the best our group had ever had! Worth the drive!

The Brakeman burger prepared with Elk is very tasty. It was lean but not dry. Had enough wild flavor in it but not overwhelming. The hand cut fries went well with their house made dipping sauce.

If you only go for the steak and cheese sandwich you will not be disappointed. In fact this is the only thing I have eaten here, it is that good. I had ice tea for a beverage, real tea and tasty. It is right on Hwy 33 at the SH 31 junction. Don't miss it.

The service was good. The burgers were also good but nothing to rave about. I found mine to lack some seasoning in the patty being overshadowed by the toppings. After reading all the rave reviews I am thinking we were there on an off day so I'll revisit.
