This place had amazing burgers along with great tacos! I had the bacon burger...with lots of bacon! There must have been fives pieces of bacon on it.

It's a fifties style diner with the burger/fries and shake type of menu. They are proud of their chili. The inside of the restaurant is meticulously decorated with posters, pictures and newspaper clippings, old records, etc. I liked it there.
