6/29/2019 - Not much to look at but the best burger I've ever had! - Submitted by Jim Sak

10/7/2016 - Went into FQD last weekend for a burger. Wow, absolutely delicious. There is a covered deck outside with a couple of picnic tables, also out in the yard there are a couple more tables with umbrellas. Inside was tiny but very cool. It's a cash-only spot so have some green backs on you. Runway is freshly re-opened after some resurfacing and painting, it looks great! Do yourself a favor and get to 57 Alpha - See some old friends or make new ones. - Submitted by Phillip L.

11/1/2010 - Tiny restaurant, but the best burger I think I've ever ate!! Well worth the trip! - Submitted by Don

9/5/2009 - Fantastic flight and beautiful scenery to go along with the good food and wonderful service not to speak of the great music provided by the owner out on the porch while you eat. You need to go on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. - Submitted by Dennis C
