We stopped in for lunch and were very happy we did! The food was really good. Not too greasy for fried foods! The fresh cut fries were great!!! And the kids even got ice cream there after lunch, which they loved! The only downside was there were a lot of bees while we were eating and only outdoor seating was... More

Great strip food. Picnic tables to sit at. My wife had a chicken sandwich with bacon and provolone. I had a Philly cheesesteak. I've had much better but it was still good. Hers was ok also. The buns were fresh on both as this is a very busy sandwich shack. Frozen lemonade is not as good as Bob's food court... More

My family and I ordered a corn dog, philly cheesesteak, a family fry and a double cheeseburger. Food was OK and cost $25. The family fry was $5 and was enough to feed 4 of us. However, they were already fried and when ordered, refried to male hot again, causing them to be over cooked. I would have rather waited... More

This is an outside eatery. They do have picnic tables under a roof so you can be shielded from sun and rain. You order at the counter and pick up your food. The quality has been maintained since this business has been open (Summer only... The whole town just about shuts down after the summer season). Varieties of sandwiches, fresh... More

We frequent Geneva on the Lake and this is one of the best places to stop for food. It's a casual little food stall that features burgers, fully staffed sandwiches, cheese steaks, wraps, ice cream, drinks and more! The portions are always generous and the people are always friendly. I've never had anything bad there.

Great food and great service right on the strip. Big selection of sandwiches, burgers, and the best fresh cut fries in Geneva.

Fantastic cheese steaks and fries. They also have great pulled pork and onion rings. Fast service right in the middle of the strip.
