    Great Italian Beef, Sausage, Dog's , Burger's. I haven't had anything bad here other then the fries. Skip the fries and bump it up to onion rings. If you like milk shakes you must try a Cake Shake!

    A must-stop place if your in the area. I would recommend going after the lunch hours since this place is usually packed. For dessert, try the cake shake with a whole piece of chocolate cake inside!

    By far, my favorite beef joint. I recommend the beef, dipped, with (sweet peppers), and cheddar. Hamburgers are pretty decent. You can never go wrong with a chopped salad or breaded chicken sandwich.
