We had a large party (from toddlers to senior citizens) and everyone loved their food. The house specialty is fries - all hand-cut and made to order with huge portions. The ribbon fries were much like homemade potato chips (delish!), but the curly fries were most popular at our table. I personally liked the regular fries best - crisp, not greasy, with skins on them. Portions were so large we had to pass on trying the sweet potato fries - maybe next time. The owners explained the burgers are made with fresh meat,using homemade buns from a local well-known bakery, and were incredibly good. Ditto the shakes, made the old fashioned way with hand-dipped ice cream in silver cannisters. The quality of the burgers, fries and shakes reminded me of an In and Out, but on the east coast. I will return whenever I'm in the area visiting family and need a "healthy" junk food fix. Really yummy!
