It's fast food, sure, but really good fast food. And they are fast! One of the things I like best is that it's squeaky clean. The staff is quick to remove trays and clean the tables. In the past, they've come around to offer suckers...More

Very clean, Great service. Friendly staff. Large selection, not just burgers. I had fish and fries. Delish. Not something I would normally order in a burger place but was very pleased. All in all, we would stop there again.

If you are traveling through this part of Idaho, it is worth the stop. The burgers are good and the service is fine. Definitely a local favorite. Much better than stopping at a chain restaurant like Wendys, BK or McD's.
