We've driven by a number of times, and the tables are always full. So, I was looking forward to a good burger and shake. What I got was a tasteless burger (pre-packaged/not 100% beef), ok fries, and an ok shake, ALL overpriced! Would I return?...More

The green chile cheeseburger is the best. The fries were tasty and the chocolate malt yummy. It's a walk to the restroom. There was great service.

Nice place to stop for lunch! We had a variety of items: elk burger, cheeseburger, fish, and chicken baskets. All was very good! We come every time we come through South Fork. Don't forget to grab a shake or malt before leaving!

If you are looking for quality fast food, stop here! When traveling through S. Fork, we try to time a lunch stop or an ice cream snack stop here. We have never been disappointed during the seasonal time when they are open. The last time...More

Food is good, reasonable prices, and this restaurant is very popular during the summer. It is always crowded.

Great burgers shakes and fries, little pricey but it is very good food. Burgers are old fashion and cooked after you order if your in a hurry better move on, we thought it was well worth the wait.
