    Been going there since 1983 when I used to work across the street at Fantasee Lighting. The reuben never disappoints. The restaurant's an older building with wood floors and LOTS of character!

    The only problem with this place is my bed isn't here for after I finish the Linda "Old School" Burger with double bacon and double cheddar. Because I need a nap. And some seconds on onion rings.

    Try the fried pickles they are delicious. But watch out you might burn the sh#t out your mouth. 😊 If you want chili than order a smothered bowl you'll get to savor the taste and get stuffed. 😉

    Strawberry Shortcake is great. They don't always have it and the servers hate making it, but get it anyway. You only live once, you can't live it for someone else.

    Not everything served at happy hour is giant-sized. A lot of the rarer or more alcoholic beers are served in pints. (Still good, though.)
