Gup’s (formerly known as Tep’s) is a classic, with real carhops, real trays that mysteriously attach to your window, and old school prices. The menu offers burgers, chicken, salads, sandwiches, plus garden burgers and grilled veggie sandwiches. There are many different ways to get your soft serve ice cream, and they make their own root beer.

The menu features burgers, fish, chicken, BBQ, and steak sandwiches, mini tacos, and dogs. Plus pick from fries, rings, hashbrowns, mushrooms, cheese nuggets, poppers, and more. Waffle cones, floats, freezes, shakes, malts, sno-cones, and Cyclones make for a daunting dessert selection. The ice cream is soft-serve, and there are 20 options.
