    Had the chili dog, onion rings, nuggets and a bacon double burger with a frozen FO. FO is like a orangesicle slush and yummy. Everything else including the chili dog was average. Cool place though 3/5

    One note American food. They don't even put pickles on the cheeseburgers. They don't serve milkshakes!

    The amazing thing is the following. This Restaurants food quality is horrible. It's more of a nostalgic place if anything. So somebody must know a lot of people that support the name.

    Definitely not good for you but it's much better if you split 1 combo between 2 people. It was enough food for me and my wife and we didn't feel too bad afterwards. LOL

    It's more about WHERE you eat than WHAT you eat, but get a classic combo meal and make sure you get either an orange drink or a frozen orange - you can get sodas anywhere.
