Can't quite wrap my head around a place in business since 1918 that's survived/ surviving & personally I think that history is great and I'd love to be able to see this place in action over the decades. I wonder if their very first patron...More

The name is perfect but it doesn't quite say it all. It is a tavern and it is a place that working men and women will find friendly. That's not to say that Fortune 500 executives would be mistreated but they're not likely to read...More

The best cheeseburgers and doubles ever! Fast, friendly service. Can't beat the fries or onion rings. If a ham & cheese fan go for the Big John.

The menu is simple and is writen on a chalk board on the back wall: handmade hamburgers and pork tenderloin sandwiches, with a side of french fries. Salads? There might be one type available. No table cloths or cloth napkins. Fomica topped tables and chairs...More
