Burgermaster is a local drive-in chain that started in 1953 and hasn't changed much since then. Their food is great and and it retains its 1950's drive-in charm. That and their great neon sign should be reason enough for you to visit.

The Thunderbird sign is a local landmark and has managed to hang on as other old signs on Aurora Ave. are mowed down. Although it has seen better days it still shows the charm of the great Americana along old U.S. Rte 99.
