A small bar and restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but we had a great time. Portions are large and food is very good. Fun and sometimes loud atmosphere (but we were there on St. Patrick's weekend!)

Who would of thought a place so fun and good would be out in the middle of no where lancaster county? I even hesitate to rate it as now everyone will start going there. Be prepared to wait if you go on the weekend. The place was packed 4 deep at the bar, I think there might be 12-15 tables total. We got a place at the bar (bar tenders super friendly) and had to wait for a table but it wasn't overly long. All I can say is the burgers are awesome, big, juicy, and wide variety to choose from. Couple that with hand cut fries and you can't go wrong!

Service was great, we were waited on by several servers, and it seemed like they were one big happy family helping each other out.

This place has AMAZING burgers and sandwiches. The portions are massive, you could easily split the burgers. My only gripes are the size of the place... It's little and always packed. I wish they could expand...

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday afternoon. The interior was old but clean and had a nice ambiance. Being there right when it opened there was no wait to be seated and our waitress got our drinks and took our order promptly. The wait for our food was quite long. It seemed that the kitchen was either unprepared or could not handle 10 orders at once since there was 10 of us. Most of us ordered burgers. The burgers were definitely worth the wait. Everyone loved their food and stated that they would go back another time. If you are not from the area the place is a bit hard to find but worth the effort if you want a good burger. If in a hurry for a quick lunch break I would skip this place. If you are in the mood for an excellent burger in a neat out of the way place, definitely try eating here.

This is a small, out of the way, local bar with great food. Although it's often used as a good burger and fries stop, the dinners are surprisingly delightful. Expect to wait for a table but you can enjoy the company of friendly folks at the bar while waiting. Avoid weekends if you can, since the place is usually too packed to be comfortable... or as an alternative, show up for dinner early(around 5:30PM) and then hang out for drinks later. You won't be disappointed.
