Gene and Vicky, the owners of S&T's have an excellent restaurant. One of my favorite meals is the Bankers chicken salad. If you celebrate a birthday, Vicky asks all of the patrons to join in singing Happy Birthday while serving up a monster ice cream sundae. The atmosphere is that of the old dairy bar that was located there many... More

S & T Soda Shoppe is a must-stop for lunch or a lovely ice cream treat. I love the decor and the old photos around the restaurant. The BLT was good and the chocolate milkshake was even better.

If you are looking to go back in time and experience the old fashion soda bar, this is your place. The ice cream is great and don't miss the root beer float.

We went there on a Tuesday after the lunch hour rush with 8 people. We only ate ice cream but there were lots of people around us ordering food. The place was very busy, but they were able to seat us rather quickly. We all ordered individually as it was a "special treat" day, but you could get by with... More

Can't go wrong with S&T! Great local eatery plus best ice cream in town. We were in Durham and decided to take a little side trip to Pittsboro and come to our favorite soda shoppe before heading home. We had the grilled pimento cheese and the foot long hotdog with added cheese. The shredded cheese is loaded on top of... More

We went for a "quick" bite to eat, but the casual atmosphere made us stay longer. Great service and even better food. Like all the others, it's a must go to eat place.

The ice cream sundaes are great! This was a casual, quick get together with a friend who was craving ice cream. This is a local eatery and hand dipped ice cream parlor. Please take the time to drop into this friendly nostalgic atmosphere when you can.

Inside a historic, small-town space, very cool, on the main street. The non-dessert fare is OK, typical diner-style food. The ice cream desserts are awesome! Every town should have a little locally owned soda shop like this.

S&T is one of those hidden treasures you find in small towns. Great sandwiches, Lacal favorites; the Gambler flake steak servered piping hot on a flat iron and the cheesiest lasagna ever. Antiques that give you the real ole time soda shop feel plus 22 favors of great ice cream make the resturant a must to find time to dine.... More

S&Ts is a very interesting spot, with antique pharmacy cupboards and bottles and an old soda counter. It's old fashioned and pretty. The ice cream is not homemade, but it's tasty anyway. Sundaes are huge, piled high with whipped cream. Hours are limited, so check before you go.
