About US

Our staff can be seen daily cleaning and disinfecting all the surfaces throughout the restaurant. Customers rave how clean the restaurant is when they visit, especially the bathrooms. The fun and colorful atmosphere provide numerous opportunities for family photos. Outside seasonally due to cold temperatures are the restaurant’s prominent, adorable fiberglass figures of a large cone of fries, a hot dog dousing himself with ketchup, and the crowd’s favorite Blue Brothers.
