Maybe the best french fries in Philadelphia as long as ordered unseasoned.  Add little salt yourself.  The potatoes are fresh cut, thick cut, blanched, and finish fried to order.

The burgers are big.  Eight ounces.  All sorts of garnish options.  They are proud of their truffle butter burger.  I had mine basic burger joint style - cheddar, tomatoes, lettuce, onion and mayonnaise.

Went back for a grilled hotdog.  All beef, natural casing, topped with bacon and cheddar cheese.

Shakes are made the old fashioned way.  Hand dipped ice cream and served with the leftover milk shake in the stainless steel blending cup.

Everything is made to order.  To pass the time while waiting, there are sheets of paper, crayons and chalk.  Most end up on the wall.  There is a monthly contest - winner gets a meal.
