Is a very popular, and somewhat hidden gem in Fondren. The food is good and filling. However, one would do well to limit visits to infrequent special times. This is definitely not an everyday dining option. Very high calorie and fattening choices.

They shakes are ones like when we were kids. The real cherry coke I shared with my mother here when I was just a kid. Brings back memories every time I go here. I recently took my teenage daughter to share it with her.
