A good venue

Back to the 50's indeed, if this is your thing! Great for families too. Great shakes, but expensive. Just find out for yourself.

Just had ice cream and it was excellent. The place is worth seeing 50's decor inside and out. Right on route 66 so the theme fits right in.

If you like your food frozen, thawed and fried this is the place to go. The only reason to go here if for ice cream on a hot afternoon.

I got a sundae and my husband got a malt! He was excited because they even gave him the left over malt that wouldn't fit in the glass! The food looked great! Really wished we would have come to eat instead of just desserts The desserts were AWESOME! A must for our Route 66 trip!! The gift shop was small... More

The atmosphere was good. The ice cream was delicious (from kids point of view) Service was slow. Three soda jerks talking but not waiting on us. One soda jerk was working and asked one of the others to help ys. Kudos to him. Three instead of four star because they don't have sugar free ice cream and looked at me... More

This place is cool for the 50s diner feel, but prices are high and service was slow. We paid $26 for two shakes, a dish of ice cream, and an order of fries. The fries took over 30 minutes to receive and we only got them because my husband got up and asked about them twice. Skip eating here.

this is a restaurant that brings back memories of the 50's. It has a great menu and you will just love the malts, milk shakes, French fries, hamburgers and hot dogs. Don't miss it. If you are lucky you might even meet the Mayor of Williams.
