Very Old fashioned place typical of dairy bars that were common at one time throughout New England. Fast service but there can be a wait if it's busy they do both take out and dine in simple menu but well done. The roast beef sandwiches are flavorful and not dry. The milkshakes is a refreshing choice because they're just the... More

Roast beef is just OK. Had better, had worse. Wouldn't travel out of my way to go there. The soup was good, not sure of other menu items

Excellent roast beast sandwiches (no fat and gristle). Burgers, hot dogs, etc. Limited menu but good food and very inexpensive. How good is that! If you have kids, they will love the chicken coop. It's a very good paper plate family restaurant type place.

This place is well-known for their melt-in-your-mouth roast beef sandwiches. There's always a generous amount of beef on a soft, warm roll. Try it with an old fashioned milkshake. Fun decor, too and you can eat in a silo! Great place for a quick, cheap bite.

The menu is limited but has good food and nice staff. The roast beef sandwich is their specialty and wonderful. The steak sandwich is fine but small and gristly. The hot dogs are good and worth the visit. Dessert are standard. Do not want to cook this is the place to go.
