The Scene

Our “Best in Class” food is matched only by our atmosphere. A Raleigh original that quickly grew to 4 locations in the state’s capital and is now franchised throughout North Carolina, our burgers are sought out for their flavor, freshness and quality. We cater to years-long loyal customers, burger connoisseurs and new to the area transplants.

Our freestanding locations are a holdover from the glory days of drive-ins of cruising. After you’ve deposited your hand-written order into the slot, check out our team cooking burgers behind huge plate glass windows while you wait for the crackle of the loudspeaker to signal your order up!

“A simple menu. Flame-broiled, half-pound burgers that don’t need cute names or gourmet toppings to be good; hot dogs, crispy fries, chicken sandwiches. And be sure to save room for some of the thickest milkshakes in Raleigh.” -Joel Lindsey, June 20, 2000,
