By giving special attention to each custom framing order, the archivists carry on a tradition that began when the shop first began preserving artwork, keepsakes, and entire refrigerator doors. From in-store to at-home consultations, staff members guide customers toward the framing materials that optimize beauty and longevity. In addition to framing, Framed by Kosal's specialists offer photo restoration and large-format photo printing, and stock the store with a wide selection of art.

When you bite into a burger from Moe's Burger Joint, you might feel like you've traveled back in time. The burgers here have a classic taste evocative of those from a 1950's soda shop. To achieve that taste, cooks grill juicy patties of high-quality beef, pile on toppings such as caramelized onions and housemade chili, and croon doo-wop songs at the finished product for good measure. They also craft burgers with turkey, grilled chicken, or veggie patties to accommodate a variety of diets and preferences.
If you're not in the mood for a burger, you can still indulge in an all-beef hot dog or lighter options such as salads and wraps. Beer-battered onion rings and sweet-potato fries serve as crispy sides, and cool, creamy sips of freshly mixed milkshakes punctuate bites. Even the setting here is a treat; Moe's Burger Joint is located within Arcade Mall, an historic structure with a Victorian stepped-glass roof.
