“Milkshakes”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The burgers and fries are not the best I've had, but the milk shakes make up for it. Brent's milk shakes put Dairy Queen to shame. Those oversize straws they give you are perfect. I've never had the breakfast but I want to try it. They have an after hours speak easy type of bar. Be sure to ask about that.

“Diner Breakfast”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I had a good breakfast here this morning-it was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. I highly recommend the eggs in a basket.

I am taking one star off because I tried to go the previous morning and it was closed until lunch time which was a bit of a bummer (and there was no posting on their Facebook page). I would recommend calling to confirm they are open before driving over.

The absolute best hamburger in Jackson and the best atmosphere! The shakes are really good and so is the chicken salad!

“Best, thickest malt ever!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

Be prepared for your clothes to smell like a diner when you leave. Apparently the cook top does not exhaust to the outside.
