While the whole thing looked a bit marginal there were quite a few cars in the drive in. We had slow, unfriendly service. We both ordered a club sandwich were o.k. though nothing noteworthy. French fries and onion rings were also average.

If you find yourself in Burnsville, there are definitely better choices. But this place is a throwback to 1957 and it's worth a visit just to see, and hear, the locals. Just stick with burgers and fries and you'll be okay.

Dark, dingy, cramped, and uninspiring. But good nonetheless. And sweet little teenage waitresses.

Convenient, open 7 days a week, serving breakfast anytime, decent food, interesting local folks always chatting and visiting, AND they make great P-nut butter milkshakes (which most places don't anymore). Over all, a good place to eat!!!!
