It's a Malt Shop

This place has been in South Fork since the beginning of time. It's a local favorite. Nothing special. Exactly as advertised.

Cute small shop located at the end of a strip center (located near the Summit Ski Rental). Great location. Fabulous options & hearty helpings of ice cream!

Good burgers and fries! A little pricey but worth it. Love all the burgers and the seasoning on the fries is wonderful!

Love the chocolate malts. Do feel the meal we had is pricey for a hamburger, fries, and drink (even without the malt). Sorry that it closed for the winter before we left the area. I did not get my 2nd malt!

You can make your own ice cream sundae; however it was pricy. The atmosphere was nice. There is a very good soap shop down the street.

Their meals are a little pricey, but good. The fries are good, a little salty. Their sandwiches are very good. Had a cheeseburger. Their malts are to die for.

Great stop for a shake. Burgers are good but take a few minutes so don't be in a hurry. Service is friendly. Restrooms are free at the next door city park. They have canopy areas for seating if it's raining so don't let that stop you. We went 3-4 times in a week for shakes.

I moved here a couple of months ago to South Fork. Found its the only food that's fast here and it hasn't been that fast, good or value. Burgers are over priced and not flavorful. Service has taken long periods all 4 times I've been there and hasn't been exceptionally friendly. Too bad it's the only place of its kind... More

Nothing fancy but once you place an order and get your burger and fries or take that first sip of their malt you will see why this place is always packed! South Fork doesn't have any chain fast food restaurants but once you eat here you will know why they don't need a chain to have consistently good food.
