Brings Back Memories

This place takes me back to when I grew up. It sure brings back some great memories of me and my parents brining me down to the drug store to get a soda and ice cream. We ate some great food and ordered some dessert. The food was great and we enjoyed our meal here.

We stopped for lunch as we were going to see Taste of Home. I had the Reuben which was good, the hubs had a tuna melt. Non descripti crinkle fries. He had a shake which was good. A cute diner setting, outside seating.

Locals and visitors alike stop at this place for food and drink. They say that they can make over 1million favors of custard. I don't doubt it. Sandwiches are custom made, no pre made here. Be prepared to spend some money.

Ferch's has a counter with old fashioned bar stools to sit at when you first walk in. They have booths and near the back a juke box and small dancing area -- great for little kids. The food was very good and prices reasonable. It's in a shopping center and well worth a stop if in the area.

A visit to Ferch's is like a visit back in time. The décor is inspired by the 50s and the friendly service is too. We love Ferch's burgers, ruebens, wraps, and other offerings. To top off the good food, we always get custard. The amazing thing about Ferch's is that you can truly build your own flavor and mix-in combinations.... More

Love the atmosphere, the vibe and the food is excellent! But $20 will not feed two people. It is a high-quality place and ingredients are top notch. Just be prepared to splurge a bit.

Go back in time when eating at this place. It has very little seating and most of it is counter. Had a cheeseburger and fries burger was done well and fries were perfect nice and crispy.

Stopped in for lunch burgers, wraps, salads, sandwiches and all kinds of ice cream items I had a burger and fries both were good. Fries were crispy and burger was juicy. Also had a chocolate malt that was also very good.

This is a fun, old fashioned soda shop. If you want food, table service can be very slow. The food is good but basic (burgers and sandwiches). But the real reason to come is the feel of the place. They have a soda counter and nearly unlimited custard flavor combinations. You can watch them mix the flavors behind the counter.... More
