This place is incredible! Incredibly bad.....you can't even get them to answer the phone....too bad for them, they lost out on a table for 16. As long as there are other restaurants in the area, they will not have my business. And just as a word advice, try to eat there when the loud mouth owner is gone. It will make a miserable experience not quite so loathsome.

Notice the last review mentions that the wait staff had a "horrible attitude" and was "yelling at customers just for asking why it was taking so long". That would most likely be Alecia Kinney. She's the owner. I worked with her in 2008 for 6 months. During that time I witnessed her yell at customers, cuss out employees [in FRONT of customers!], and shoo people away who were eating food from another restaurant [which happened so infrequently that she need not do it]. Addressing the wait for food, that is simply because we make everything fresh and sometimes the diner gets really busy, which makes some people have to wait up to 30 minutes for food. The wait isn't bad considering you're getting a good meal. The employees there are wonderful! They all work hard and do their best! They rarely do anything wrong [I only add that because I understand every job has a rotten apple employee every now and then. Miss Cindy is a server/cashier/cook and I believe she is Alesia's best employee [I know her because I worked with her, and she STILL works there!]The food really is delicious. I love that you can customize your hamburger ANY way you want it [I prefer a double cheeseburger with mayo and grilled onions]. Also, Alesia is incredibly cheap though, which keeps her from spending money on items that may enhance the menu. Overall, the food is great, but I wouldn't recommend eating there unless you're a mall employee and that's the only place to eat, because Alesia will ruin the experience. If you're lucky enough to show up on a day when Alesia isn't working [She's the middle aged woman with short blond hair and an attitude. Trust me, she won't be hard to find!] then I would definitely recommend stopping by for a bite!

Went on the advice of a friend while traveling through. The food was average, but the service was ATROCIOUS!!! Have never seen such a horrible attitude by wait staff!

Witnessed them yelling at customers just for asking why it was taking so long for food to be served. My friend told me that there may be new ownership and apologized for the recommendation.

I'd go hungry before eating here again.

After the main building burned down a few years ago, they are now located in the Mall. They specialize in burgers and hot dogs and the decor is 1950s-esque.
