The cheesehead is the ultimate Solly's burger: 2/3 of a pound of ground sirloin, grilled mushrooms, stewed onions and raw onions, Swiss & American cheese. Plus, of course, plenty of butter.

Solly's used to be known as Solly's Coffee Shop.  Now it's Solly's Grille.  Inside, the food is as good as ever, and the counter seats are a diner delight.
