Many businesses come and go, few survive the test of changing times.  However, one small restaurant in Bluewell that has become known for more than just its food.

"We want them to come, and feel like they are at home when they do come and eat," says restaurant manager Tangie Prasatk.

There's no need to be shy when you arrive at Dicks Swiss Burger, just pull up a chair and choose from the classics.

Prasatk adds, "They love the burgers here. Well it's an eight ounce patty, and we put Swiss cheese on it, and it comes on a patty that's probably about this big. And everybody loves it."

One loyal customer, and more recently, employee raves about a menu item, that she's passed on at other places.

"I did not like Philly Steaks, at all, what so ever. So the other day I was just thinking about it, and I was like I'm going to try one so I did, and I am in love with some Philly Steaks now."

Another thing that makes this steak sandwich a standout is the bun, it's deep fried.  "People come in and they ask us, 'please tell us you've still got the deep fried bun!'"

It's that kind of comfort food, along with the laid back atmosphere thats helped keep this business going for more than four decades.
