Stopped here for lunch while sight-seeing through the area. My husband ordered a cheeseburger which he said was very poor quality meat. He only had a few bites, and he was pretty hungry. He didn't bother sending it back because they wouldn't have been able to fix it. I had a peanut butter supreme sundae, which was OK, but I... More

Dumser's ice cream is the best I've ever eaten. We look forward to getting it everytime we're in OC. We also eat lunch there before we watch the St. Patty's Day parade.

Fried shrimp were greaseballs and fries were tasteless; friends had gray hamburgers. Too bad, I used to like this place.

We've been to Dumser's before. We wanted something light and ordered the Monterey Salad. It was ok, but we are always disappointed when establishments use Iceberg lettuce instead of something more nutritious. The ice cream sundaes did not disappoint. Since we were visiting in March, it's nice to know this local operation is open. Next time, we'll try something different... More

Did our traditional "lunch at Dumsers" with group of 40 while at a youth retreat. Staff remains seamless in service to large groups like ours...they are professional, welcoming, and fun! The food was, as is typical for Dumsers, stellar! What a selection...and how do they get it out so hot for so many customers?!?! Oh yes...and if there's a better... More

Dumsers makes their own ice cream ( you can watch them by the inlet on the backstreet store). Nobody can touch their smooth chocolate malts. You will never be satisfied with anyone's milkshakes again. Absolutely the best! I hope that when I retire I can work for them! Good old fashioned business! Go there!

Went in for the ice cream.......needless to say, we were there almost every night we were in OC. We got the Brownie Sundae for $7.50 and it is worth every dime!

Had the cheeseburger special--very good and as cheap (or cheaper than McD's). Had to have the chocolate/chocolate ice cream soda with peanut butter fudge ice cream. If you haven't tried it, you'll like it!
