“Old Fashioned Food and Service”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

The best of old school fast food and shakes. It always feels like going back into simpler times. Service is always great, food is always fantastic, and the fried zucchini always takes forever to cool. Enjoy your shake and come back to it. Worth the wait.

“Best Peanut Butter Milkshakes!”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

This place is a bit out of the way if you do not live in the area but worth a special trip especially for the milkshakes. Try the peanut butter, so very good! Burgers are fresh and so are the fries. Try the fried zucccni for a change of pace.

“IMHO Average”
Reviewed 26 December 2010

Didnt really hit the spot with me. Even Carl's Jr. and Birger King are better. If you're into different flavors of shakes, though, you should check this place out.
