In 1926 John Martin opened a little restaurant named Martin's Kum-Bak which served hamburgers, shakes and other popular items of the time. It was a small place with a dirt floor along with just eight bar stools inside and a small drive through. Up until the 1940s and 1950s the majority of Martin's business was done in the parking lot with car hops. Through those early years, the dirt floor was responsible for Martin's Kum-Bak eventually being nicknamed "Dirty's" or "Dirty Martin's". Though a concrete floor was added in 1951, the unofficial name of "Dirty's" stuck with the patrons and, years later, was adopted by Martin's. The original Martin's was neighbored by a local gas station until 1957 and sometime after, a bar named The Friendly Tavern. But in the mid 1960s the walls between the two were knocked down and the two buildings were joined to create a back dining area for the restaurant giving more indoor space to patrons. This same building has been providing a comfortable, friendly atmosphere to our loyal customers to this day.

But what about our food? Obviously we couldn't have been so successful so long with out great food! When you eat at Dirty Martin's, you are guaranteed to have the freshest food possible! Every day we get a fresh delivery of bread, meat and produce. We have been serving our burgers the same way since 1926 - Only the freshest hamburger meat is used and it is NEVER frozen. Our onion rings and French fries are homemade as well as our hand squee
