    While cute, this new space is by no means hip. Should you care? Not really—the sandwiches (serviceable), chili (robust) and shakes (heavenly) taste the same no matter where you have them.

    Stop by Friday night 6-9 for a purposefully not fancy damn good diner burger. They invent an amazing special burger every Friday as well, and sometimes have them left over on Saturday.

    It's true the BLAST is the best ever but their meatball sammie is my second fav. Be sure to get a shake, it'll be worth it.

    Try the blast "The Danny Way." It deepens and enriches the meaning of the original blast.

    Sharp cheddar, mozzerella, and American are used in the grilled cheese, fusing into one gooey sandwich. The apple-ginger cole slaw works well as the crisp and fresh antidote to all that cheese.
