Known For

Burgers

This shabby, carry-out shack on the east side of downtown has amassed a loyal following over the years for its old-school, no-nonsense burgers, which are served alongside large potato-wedge fries. Our recommendation? Go for the juicy, half-pound monster of a cheeseburger, some well-seasoned tater tots, and a root beer float. Pro tip: place your order by phone ahead of time to avoid what's sure to be a long wait.
