  1. You're talking about the one downtown? The Ollieburger is still good and greasy. So are the fries. Can't vouch for anything else though, and the interior seems to scare people.

    1. Fries are pretty terrific. And I have been known to enjoy their shakes.

      1. I have always been intrigued by this place and when driving by the other day remarked to the bf that it had been around forever... so it's a greasy spoon burger and fries kind of place... hmm may have to go just because it is what it is.

          Ollie's Trolley is an old, old chain.

          The only other place to get an Ollieburger is at Lums, yet another defunct chain. Although, there are a few independent Lums still around.

            thanks for the link, i'll definitely be stopping by for lunch today...i have a weird craving for a good greasy burger.

        2. One of the keys to enjoying Ollie's Trolley is to order it to your liking, preferably medium rare or rare. If you are looking for fast food, they will give it to you well done. Medium Rare, there is nothing especially greasy about the Ollieburger. It is juicy, and while maybe not as tasty as that of old, is still a very good burger.

          1. I just found a website of an ex-employee of Ollies Trolleys ... He has posted recipes.......
