Serves amazing hamburgers in three sizes (mini, single, and double), cheeseburgers or bacon cheeseburgers, and the veggie burger is also amazing! Order solo or as part of a basket with a pile of Frings – the best of both worlds (onion rings and potato wedgie/fry combo). The amazing thing with their fried food is they aren’t greasy! The double burger, which is two good-size patties, is huge and piled inside a broad sesame seed bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. The menu warns that all burgers come with all condiments “unless you say otherwise”.
The milk shakes are everything you want a shake to be!
The hamburger is presented partially wrapped in wax paper, providing a way to keep it together as you eat it. Don’t take the paper off! It is there for a purpose, to keep the burger to keep the immense thing from disintegrating. Eat your onion rings and French fries first. Drink your milk shake. then tackle the burger.
