“Have you not tried the food?”

LaBamba Burger is amazing! Potato salad is scrumptuos (Thanks Jim)!, the salads are large! Kid-friendly menu. Prices are reasonable for freshly prepared food.

“Love this place - great children's sundaes and it's so close to the drive-in!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

Debra T's is the most convenient place to get food & ice cream before going to the drive-in movie theater, located nearby. It is a bit pricey, but the children's sundaes are the perfect size for me and they aren't too expensive. They come in a bunch of varieties, one that looks like a clown and one that looks like a mouse :)
The decorations in the place are a bit too much but I think a child would love it. I like this place because it is one of the only family-owned cafes in the area.

“No Way! This Place is Overrated!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2009

This is just an overpriced ice cream stand and the ice cream is not even high quality or homemade. Perhaps people like this place due to the ornamental play equipment. The owner is grumpy and more concerned with wiping down every crumb on the counter than service with a smile and the friendliness of the staff is only so-so. It’s a very clean environment and cheerful décor but the only plus I see is the play equipment for children. The food is typical greasy fast food, and again the ice cream is underwhelming considering the prices. The owner closes the place down on Mondays and sporadically early whenever it pleases her. It’s surprising anybody can do business this way. They need competition – like a Dairy Queen. In fact we drive past his place and 15 minutes further for QQ!

“Deborah T's Ice Cream Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2008

Excellent food, very clean- reasonable prices. Great place to take children- rides for the kids- unusual solar lights on all their picnic table umbrellas.
Goota see it- only open in spring, summer and fall unfortunately.
