GREAT food!

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... read more

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

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.

We loved our burgers and shakes. They were delicious. Located a few minutes from the Lake Arrowhead Resort. Don't let the appearance of this little "hole in the wall" in Cedar Glen keep you out.

This place has the best burgers ever, and fantastic shakes made with real fruit. Its decorated 50's style playing music from a table top jukebox. The service is fast and friendly. Definitely worth it.

When kids had braces, would take them there for a malt as a treat. My daughter informed me she held a grudge because once I ran out of gas and she didn't get her malt (she is 40+) I love the lowrider hamburger. Get it w/o bun. Gooey, messy, yummy

Thiss place is historic and has been there forever. The burgers are some of the best on the mountain. The shakes excellent. Will definitely go back. Many choices of burgers.
