Lunch on patio

Very good burger. So many fries we could have split and order. Quite tasty and seasoning on fries. Did not try the malts. Outdoor eating only.

We have been coming to this establishment for the last 4 years on our visit to South Fork. Great Malt Shakes & Huge Variety. The lines look long, but worth the wait!

If you like paying $4.00 for a 16 ounce milkshake and waiting 30 minutes for one shake, go for it. Its amazing the prices charged at this establishment. Understand that small seasonal businesses need to make $$, but the prices here were laughable and ice cream is nothing special

Always have excellent service here and the seasoned fries are great. We have had Cheeseburger Baskets and Chicken Strip baskets and the food is always very good. Top it off with a malt or soft serve ice cream "twist" with chocolate and vanilla. a little pricey for ice cream cone (3.00 small/3.50 for large) but well worth it.

We always stop there. Sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, fries, sweet potato fries, and more, but the best are the shakes and malts---they alone are worth a stop at this little roadside stand.

Burgers average but think could improve on meat quality. They were out of onion rings. Seating outside only and we were attacked by mosquitos and had to leave. Kids enjoyed their food and went back for more malts!

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!
