    The burgers are great, but the macaroni and cheese is better.

    Blue cheese lovers need to try the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger, it's even better than the Cadillac. Shoe string onion rings are great as well.

    The cheese burger is brilliant! One of my all time favorites. Medium done, it melts in your mouth, and the partially fried pickles were the best part. The fries were excellent too.

    Excellent burger. Very similar to other old school burger joints like J.G. Melon. If it's your first time, go for the cadillac.
