    The Velveeta burgers are great and I always get grilled onions to add oomph. The fries are great and the mini tacos are fun and yummy! I love the atmosphere here - you feel like you are on vacation.

    Only takes cash no debit or credit cards. Got a single cheeseburger w everything on it, a choc shake & order of loaded tater tots. Yummy. Use to eat here as a child. First time back in 20 years. A+++

    Cheeseburgers are just excellent. My daughter, who usually leaves most of whatever she's ordered on the plate, demolishes her Little Mak! Loyal patron for more than 25 years!!

    Air conditioner works. Great burger. Fries should go back to the fresh cut.

    Very delicious cheeseburger. Be advised, cash only. Not a bad little hamburger joint to stop at to avoid fast food. Not that far off the highway.

    Great food but too many rude people from Illinois. They must not have places to eat and visit in that state!

    Don't forget it is a GREAT Burger Joint. They do have A/C. I would suggest a double cheese burger, onion rings & a Stella.
  • Allan M.
    Overrated. All things shared @table w/others disappointing, from burgers, fries, patty melt, fries & onion rings. Tho good service, & clean bathroom. Eat elsewhere,i.e. Stray Dog,Casey's,David's Deli

    Make sure to bring cash. They don't accept debit/credit and the ATM is a $3.50 fee.

    You can't to wrong with any of the burgers and the fish sandwich is to die for even though they are strips of fish and not a filet.

    Patty melt is amazing. Atmosphere and prices are really nice. The fact they don't take credit or debit sucks. This isn't the stone age. Alot of their "specials" are just gfs frozen foods it seems.

    Burgers are good...but not great, I would never crave this place...it's not a must have. Nothing special about side dishes. Not impressed overall. Left me wishing I would have ate somewhere else.

    Disappointing. I'm sorry, If you charge for fries, you should get a significant amount of them. Burgers are good, but overpriced. Onion rings are a waste of time. Ordered a Stella, came out flat.

    Burgers were good but not "legendary" as advertised; Bloody Mary was not good at all; Veggie burger was Morningstar brand out of a box... They don't make their own?

    Food was great but the one dollar sign rating was misleading. Not expensive but not cheap. Crowded but it was speedy. Recommend the cheeseburger which was cooked to perfection.
