Nice way to end out trip before heading back down the mountain

Fun, old time burger and shake place! Very casual but the burgers and shakes/malts won't disappoint. Fries and onion rings were also good. Would eat here again in a heartbeat, great prices for families.

We'd never been to Lake Arrowhead before. After taking a 2 hour ATV tour we walked next door to the Cedar Glen Malt Shop. The atmosphere is ok, nothing special. The menu is simple (basically burgers fries malts/shakes and a few add ons...what more could you want) and cute, different car names for each of their burgers and a whole... More

If you are out and about maybe hiking the PCT or jumping off Rocks at Aztec Falls in Lake Arrowhead. You will always want to finish at Cedar Glen Malt Shop. Best burngers within 100 miles. I love the Low Rider. Also they will make you any malt or shake you want. I get the bannana, choclate chip malt with... More

That's why you would want to go to this place. The burgers are okay, but not great. The variety of burgers is good, but the burger patty itself, leaves a lot to be desired. The fries that come with the burgers are not great either. Food is mediocre

While staying in Lake Arrowhead, we followed the reviews and our grumbling stomachs to this malt shop. Let me first say that we did not indulge in the signature piece, a malt, because we were hungry and needed a burger. As our order arrived, one of the two dishes was wrong. This can happen anywhere, and our server was quick... More

I wanted to like this place, but was very disappointed. The fries and onion rings were really overdone, bordering on burnt. My turkey burger was cooked alright but I did not care for the flavor. The other burgers we got, the chili and the blue cheese were just ok. We did however all love our shakes/malts. Strawberry, orange, maraschino cherry-they... More

My husband and I go here every so often and we love their food! We have not tried a lot of the items on the menu because we found a few things we love: FOOD: Tijuana Taxi (chicken sandwich - LOVE IT) Low Rider (husband loves this hamburger) - we substitute the fries for the onion rings - we think...

This was a fun trip back to the 50's and the burger was one of the best i've ever had. Bring an appetite though because the serving sizes are generous.

This place is a throwback to the good old drive-in. The portions are big, the food delicious and the malts to die for. Always leave stuffed!

Going to the CG Malt Shop is like time travel to the sock hop age. Fantastic burgers and fries! The milkshakes are the BEST! Get ready to loosen your belts after your meal. A true treat for guests, visitors, and family every time.
