I spent the majority of the day at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park and due to a suggestion if I wanted a great burger, go to Shelby Forest General Store.
The store is right before the entrance of the park and the parking lot was packed when I first headed into the park. However I arrived after 4 p.m. the lot was empty.
When going in, was quickly greeted and my order taken. I ordered a double cheeseburger and fries. My order was put in and it was a short wait.
When getting my food, the burger was a nice portion. It was also very juicy and yummy! Just the type of burger you expect from a small local eatry. The fries were hot and crispy. I was full after eating both.
The three employees were very friendly and one was quite pleased when telling her that I came because of a suggestion.
The pricing of the items are very reasonable.
The dining room is small and there is two dining counters. There were books and magazines for the dining room to enjoy. Also there is a nice size patio with additional seating that looks like a great place to dine when warm
One word of advice, make sure to either arrive or call in your order before 4:15 p.m.! They stop preparing hot items around this time. One of the staff advise to call in for the order around this time.
They are open late on Fridays for steaks until 9 p.m.
The only bad part is it's a distance from many places and some may not want to venture so far to dine.
The store also has alot of the feel of a country store where the locals often come.
If I'm at the park again, will return to dine!
