Was there a few times. Amazing burgers and fries! Great homemade food at great prices... Anyone been here, if not worth a trip. Opinions???

    Is this the place I've been to with the old fashioned ice cream parlor inside? I first discovered it from an older friend/neighbor (sadly now gone). I haven't been in years. Glad to read it's still there :)

        Yes, and as far as I know they make their own ice cream as well. This place has been around for ages, since the 1920s. Haven't been there in a while but the menu was pretty eclectic. Great burgers and fries but also a whole lot more.

        We wandered in there about 10 years ago for a fast bite and were amazed by the meal we had. Congrats on finding it.

          My wife grew up nearby so I have been a semi regular for 20 years. It is one of my favorite places to take my young kids. Great burgers,sandwiches and salads. Many pasta and chicken choices. Best of all are the fountain drinks and ice cream. Where else can you still get a real eggcream or cherry lime ricky. Service is kid friendly, prices and portions fair.

            I frequent this place way too much. The hot fudge sundae's are great as are the malteds.
