I had the offspring with me and decided to go get a burger and a shake. They got burgers, I got a cup of soup, which it was literally 8.0 oz. (dry measurement mind you) of chili, it was good and not flaming spicy like other chilies I have tried. You have to pay 0.75 cents if you want a TBSP(literally) of sour cream on the side, so when it comes to soup portions they are on the minute side. However, one small side of French fries was enough for the 4 of us, go figure, potatoes are cheaper than beans. Now the bathroom is on the basement and in my opinion is hazardous because of their steep stairs, inconvenient since is not accessible-you have to go through the kitchen to get to it- and it was simply gross. Some how my kids found it adventurous since they went 3 times on the short time we were there probably just to annoy me. The only thing that remains on my yearning taste buds was the strawberry shake I ordered, it was lovely. One half shake was plenty for 2. Local coupons have buy one burger get one free.

This place has great burgers & malts. They have been around for 30 years. It's a joint - please don't come here for gourmet food. They do have salads & other sandwiches. But honesty, you don't come here for salads or grilled cheese.
Great to bring kids here because they get the food to you within 5-6 minutes of when you order. Fun pictures on the walls too - but the burgers & malts are the major attractions.
Also - prices modest - just a dollar or two above fast food.
Strongly recommended as a family place with young children if they like burgers, fries and malts.

Been stopping here for years. A great burger, comes in a plastic basket with all of the fixings and fries. Best part is old fashioned made malts in just about every flavor possible. Owner is there to greet you each and every time.

If you are looking for a great burger and a malt, this is the place. The menu is simple so that makes choosing your malt flavor the biggest decision.

Friendly family place. Good service. Lunch is usually crowded, so give it a little time. Not a lot of parking but worth the trip.
