I have eaten here several times, the food is great and the service is great! Burgers are fresh, onion rings are awesome. Malts are also great! I visit anytime I am in town.

I had a double meat cheeseburger & my wife had the steak finger basket. She loved hers & I would say my burger was better than Jucy’s which was voted best burger in Texas.

Most people love the burgers here but I'm a fan of their steak fingers. Top it off with the onions rings and you're set!
