Local car lovers and hot rod fans will love this two-story, 9,500-square foot restaurant and gaming venue not far from the Stephanie exit off I-215. The ceilings are so high that it seems you are eating outdoors. A neat feature is the television set placed in the backseat of a Cadillac model hanging in the stall of the men’s bathroom. Now, that’s classy! The burger itself is plenty filling, though a touch overcooked. Still you aren’t cheated and the price is reasonable, especially if you play the video poker. We did hit a $100 four-of-a-kind, which makes the whole meal a lot more pleasing. There are 30 TVs and five 61-inch big screens. A great place to bring friends.
