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.

Don't eat here if you are trying to lose weight. The burgers are big and dripping with whatever you want on them. The malts are to die for. Sometimes it gets crowded but that is because they have the best burgers on the mountain. I like like the 50's atmosphere too.

A true dive. Decent food, but nothing more. Reeeeally needs to be cleaned up. We don't think dirty carpeting is part of the 50's diner theme … it just makes the place look worn out and unappealing. Maybe they do it to keep the off mountain crowd away and make it a locals only spot. Pretty disappointing.

The food was good but the shakes were amazing. I recommend coming here to get dessert in the mid day

That's it it was just okay. The waiters were fine and helpful but we ordered a malt and got a shake and the place could use some clean up and updating.
