In a hurry just call in your order and be in and out in 3 minutes. One of the best burgers in town always cooked just the way you want it. I'm there atleast 4 times a month

The breakfast is pretty impressive too. I have eaten many many of Eric's burgers....with the mission to try and figure out what his secret ingredient is that makes them taste so great. 60's feel to the place with great memorabilia on the walls.

The people at Eric's are terrific. Stop in, place your order for breakfast, sit at an old school round seat counter, or booth, everyone is talkative, pleasant and friendly. It's where the LOCALS eat!

Where the locals go. Not fancy, but a fun place for a burger, fries, etc. The owner does the grilling. You order and pay, give a name and the call you when it's ready. No fuss, no muss, but good.

One of the best cheeseburgers I've ever had. Good breakfast options, as well. I would definitely recommend their burgers!

tasty grease burgers, crispy fries, good condiment selection but it is very noisy, the booths are too crammed together and very hard for ingress and egress

Eric the owner does most of the cooking....Both breakfast and lunch are fantastic....Eric makes his own chop meat for the burgers...They are fresh and handmade every morning......A must visit if you are in town.......
