MAIN FARE (Burger):

  • These are thin-patty burgers, so a double cheeseburger is in order here.  The burgers come standard with  pickles, tomato, onion, and mustard... so I add lettuce (which is shredded iceburg). 
  • Burgers are served on buttered & toasted poppy seed buns (or you can request a non-seeded bun) and wrapped in wax paper... a necessity for eating in the car. 
  • This is a classic American double-cheeseburger cooked on a flat-top grill.
  • I like the poppy seed buns and the fact that they lightly grill the onion.

FOOD

The burger was beefy, and the mushrooms were well sauteed.  The cheese, however, was sparse, and didn't quite cover the meat, much less the bun.

OTHER FARE

We tried the cheese fries, but there wasn't much special to them.  In fact, I probably wouldn't spend the extra money to get them again.  They also serve tacos, which, by view of the tacos menu location, seemed to be an afterthought.

ATMOSPHERE

MAIN FARE

Basic cheeseburger, very oniony.  It was interesting that they asked if you wanted lettuce - that was different.  I ordered without pickles, I don't like hamburger pickles.  The other interesting thing was the poppy seed buns, which would have been nice, if they were not COVERED with poppy seeds.  Those seeds were falling out all over the place.  The meat patty was pretty thin, which is probably why they offered a second patty for nominal price.

Main Fare

The burger was OUTSTANDING. Everything I wanted on it, but I had to ask for lettuce.

Other Fare

The fresh cut fries were pretty good, but they could use some salt. The onion rings were nice and tender. The tots were pretty good.

Atmosphere

Since they were a drive in I cant rate there inside. But our waitress was nice and our food got out there fast.

MAIN FARE (Burger):

  • Burgers are offered with 1/2 pound patties, so Jack and I decide to split one. 
  • The "Cheeseburger" comes with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and thousand island dressing.  We quickly replace the dressing with mustard, and add red onions and pickles.  Interesting side note that they use roma tomato slices on their burgers.
  • The meat is cooked on a flat top grill, and pressed thin with a spatula.  Our burgers are cooked extremely well-done and were crispy around the edges of the patty.  Using fresh, choice meat, I keep waiting for the beef flavor explosion inside my mouth... but it never comes.
  • The burger comes inside a large hamburger bun, which seems too large for the single, thin patty.
  • One of their tag lines is that everyhing is fresh... and that did seem to be the case for the burger.  However, the patty had a hard time measuring up to the bun and overcoming cooking issues.

Main Course

The burger was okay, but they didn't have what I wanted so I asked for pickles, onions,  mustard, and for no thousand island.

Other Fare

They had good fresh cut fries but not-so-good cheese fries because the cheese fries were chewy. Their onion rings were okay, but the onion always came out of the bread. I took points off because they were out of cakes and didn't have shakes.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere was fine. They had two TV's.
