“Beachy classic - burgers and ce cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Ths s the tre and classic beach shack establishment. Fresh-faced lids serving burgers, dogs, and delicious ice cream to dripping-wet families just off the sands. It looks like the 60s have never ended here. Great selection of ice cream flavors, too!

“A Fun Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Boy oh boy, this place is packed on weekends in summer, but worth it. Just like the roadside ice cream and hot dog shops you remember as a kid--no matter where that might have been. Their homemade ice cream is he best on the East End. Bring our wallet or ATM card--cash only!

“Greatest burgers and ice cream in Montauk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

My husband and I love this place! It's not a trip to Montauk if we don't get a sloppy, juicy burger and some incredible homemade icecream at John's Drive In

“Chocolate covered frozen bananas...enough said.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Great place for ice cream and burgers. :) The frozen bananas are a great summer treat, but they often run out by about 7.
