    In business for over 42 years must say something for this place. Old school burger joint with great burgers, deep fried dogs, onion rings and milkshakes. Just go.

    Our favorite burger in the city. Make sure you ask for homemade burger. Little known that their chicken soup when they have it is out of this world. We Know the Neighborhood!!!

    Super nice people! Stupid me, running for the bus I tripped & fell INTO the street where people came from every direction to help. A guy handed me $100 bill he won gambling to buy my burger... : )

    Homemade burgers are great, has that nice grill taste. Note: they only take cash.

    Get their home burgers. A little more money but worth it. Lots if toppings too. Fish and chips here are good too!

    Chicken Dinner with Fries...just ask them to take the chicken off the skewer (they do this for regulars) as it avoids choking hazard when you scarf down this awesome meal like it was the last supper!

    Home banquet burger. The best. Huge onion rings. A full days' calories in one sandwich. Love it!

    Must try the banquet burger with the special onions. Order a side of onion rings too - best onion rings I've ever had. =)

    They do one thing really well: burgers. Get the banquet burger with everything on it. Large, moist and delicious.

    No worries on cash for burgers... There's an ATM now. (and go with the homeburger - fresh never frozen)

    Don't worry about ordering the Homemade burger, just go in and ask for "the special" its $8 and tastes just as good as the $10.30 homemade one

    Keep driving by this place. Food is average at best. Five Guys or South Street burgers are so much better.
