Choice of burgers or hot dogs served on waxed paper. The burgers are good but served on waxed paper! For a quick meal at a reasonable price it is ok.

You are not paying for the paper that the food is served on! The burgers have been the best for the 48 years I have been eating in Rocky Mount. I still eat there once a week. Great chili, great hamburger steak, great slaw, and really good sweet tea. Still the best cheeseburger around. If you are coming through Rocky Mount, it is worth the trip to downtown.

My favorite hamburger in town. The best Cokes anywhere. The shaved ice makes the drinks they serve. Great people serving and cooking.

12 years ago when I first ate here it was awesome. Great burgers and hotdogs in the traditional southern style. They brought your food out on a piece of paper and they used chip ice in drinks. Well all that's still the same but the food especially the hotdogs have lost their quality and zest.

I have been eating here since the 60's,, excellent burgers & chilly dogs,, management needs training!!,, Waitress's nice & pleasant !! Only way to really appreciate the flavor of these cheeseburgers a/w & hotdogs a/w ( definitely with chilli) is to have eaten at several other establishments that claim to have the best dogs & burgers,,
