Recently visited Brent’s. I had the bacon cheeseburger and fries. An American classic perfectly executed. My wife had the chicken and waffles with the honey hot sauce. They were tremendous. Thanks to my wife for letting me finish off her leftovers. 😀

It's worth the visit for the Shakes. They have a great burger, breakfast menu as well as other common American fare.

Loved the nostalgia of this place!! The storefront looks original and you just feel like you are walking into a 50’s diner. The menu is typical diner food but everything looked good coming out of the kitchen. We got the server recommended burger and it...More
