The Chick Inn.

The Chick Inn

Although the sign is almost illegible, The Chick Inn is still in business. We were skeptical because it looks in pretty bad shape, but we decided to try it. The food was amazingly delicious. We had the sloppy joe, the loaded fries, and milkshakes (an orange and a pineapple). If we are ever back in the area, we will return to this place.
