Lots of talk about fine dining and restaurants opening and restaurants closing so here's a place that stands true since 1963:

It's an institution.

"No incursions of fast food chains or drive-thrus have ever been able to take it down. The current blended, bulked up, dressed up, piled up burger trend can’t touch it either."

"Whenever you drive by (and why are you driving by? Stop in and pick up some food!) the lengthy counter is five deep with people from all over the island. You wait your turn in the glass foyer area (there is only limited seating and it is outdoors) give your order to one of the local kids working behind the counter..."

"Ask Jerry Seinfeld, the Baldwin brothers, or the Stray Cats, all local boys who have been spotted there at one time or another."

Opinions are like...

Fresh cooked-to-order hamburger sandwiches, fresh fried fresh-cut real potatoes, and milkshakes...

I hope they never change.

"The fourth generation is going to start now."
