Simple menu, great burger, delicious fries. You just can't go wrong. Just as good as Clyde's, if not better. Friendly car hops!

This place will surprise you, like it did me. Tucked away next to the Lake Superior entrance to the locks, this little place with a dirt parking lot serves up world class burgers and fries. I mean thick, fresh made burgers and large crispy fries....More

We stop by every time we are in the area. Love the burgers and the deep fried food. We will be back. And the view of the locks is great. Make it a destination for your trip.

It was cold, rainy, and miserable. Having never been to Sault Ste Marie we went here based purely on Tripadvisor. Pull up in a gravel, beaten up parking lot surrounding a single, uninspiring building. In a hoodie to avoid the cold and rain a young...More

We always ask locals best places to eat. We were so glad they recommended this place. I tried the hot sun and my son and husband had the burgers. Everything was great!!! My advice do NOT get the double unless you can handle a pound...More
