The Best Burgers in Raleigh  

A Raleigh Tradition

  1. The bicycle is of course my favourite bit!
    I am now looking at my bedside radio, 40 years old now, and wondering if it also belongs in a museum...
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. oooh we love the chevy bench... what a cool place... a part of the good old times...

  3. I want to eat one of those burgers! I want to sit on that bench! I want to walk around and take a picture of everything in the building! This is as much fun as the train museum don't tell Brian I said that

  4. Lots of memorabilia to see there. I love the chevy bench!

  5. What a SuperCool place! Our Glenwood Drive-In cooks over charcoal flames and their burgers and hotdogs are the best!
