Liked everything I ever tried--hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken breast sandwich, fish, plate lunches, and desserts are out of this world. Red velvet cake coconut pie and cheesecake are some of my families favorites. Free parking. Could be a wait during peak dinner hours.

A coworker and I were taken here for lunch while in town on business. I had the Tuesday special, boneless fried chicken breast with biscuit and gravy and broccoli casserole (banana pudding is the recommended dessert and comes with the meal). Everything from the service to the quality of the food was great. This is definitely a place I would... More

This place has some of the best burgers I've tasted, but you will pay for the taste. This place normally has a slight wait time to be seated, especially for lunch.

I've been told about Litton's for over a year. Gotta go - great burgers - great bakery. We finally went last week. Cute place and very clean. Hamburger steak was frozen party with brown packet gravy and little taste. (About $13) Big burger was just a burger. (About $11-13) Excellent blue cheese dressing. Good draft beer prices. We ordered the... More

I love their chili dog with coleslaw and the steaks are awesome too. It's one of the few places around that I keep room for dessert. There are so many baked in house choices and there all delicious!

Litton's is a great restaurant located in Fountain City. The ambience is homey and welcoming, and their hamburgers are amazing. Make sure to leave some room for some homemade desserts!

Get there early or be prepared to wait, this place has been around for a long time and the locals know where to go for the best burgers, homemade onion rings, and fresh fries. I love this place, so go hungry, be ready for the best burgers you have ever had, and enjoy.

Litton's is not far from our house and on the two occasions we've gone we have left wondering why we went. The service is hit or miss. In the evenings there are a lot of young workers at the counter who look none too pleased to be there. You have to write your name on the chalkboard list to get... More
