My wife and I were in a bit of a rush when we stopped in. It was later in the evening and the place was fairly empty. The menu is huge - almost overwhelming. Pricing is very reasonable. The interior is pretty cool (think retro...More

Fun place for my kids but the food was not spectacular. I ordered a chili cheese omelette and the chili is too spicy for me. My son ordered french toast and it was really salty tasting but we still go back.

Decor was good but thats it. Girl taking the order was rude. Order a shack but did not get it until after we finished our meal. The owner or manage didn't give us the time of day. And he knew what was going on

The dining room is fun! You can sit and stare at the walls for awhile! Food is a good value. Burger is about the size of InNOut...not very big but priced accordingly. Fries were good tasting and they gave you a fair amount. Excellent variety...More
