Stopped in at this retro restaurant after coming from Messa Falls. What a great old diner. Their daily special was a basket of shrimp and FF for only $7.50 and we split a burger that was huge. For dessert we had our first Huckleberry shake,...More

What a fun restaurant. It is much like the A&W of olden days. Good food and ice cream. They even take your order in the car.

A great drive-in; a step back in time for me, as I've been eating here since I was a young girl. I enjoy bringing my children and grandchildren here, just for old time's sake. The food is good old greasy drive-in food, but always served...More

We stopped here on our way to Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. We were really glad we did. I suspect that many small town diners are tempted to cut corners to help their profitability. The result unfortunately is evident in the food. We suspect that...More

Frostop Dive-In has been operating on Hwy 20 in Ashton, Idaho for over 40 years. Our food is excellent, our menu is extensive, and our prices are fair. The Frostop was founded in 1965 by Leland Garner. He built an addition two years later. He sold it in 1973 to Jerald Crittenden from Ashton and two men from St.Anthony. They called it Mug Jugs. Then in 1974 Andre Bollaerts from Redondo Beach, California bought it and sold it to George Nedrow and associates, who ran the business until David and Ray Lalonde purchased it in 1975 and it became Frostop once again, with the Frostop franchise being retained. Three years later, in 1978, the W.D. Chatterton family from Pocatello bought Frostop from the Lalondes and retained ownership until 1994, when they sold it to Roger Weber. After 42 years of serving Ashton the Frostop has once again changed owners with Wayne and Hannah McCausey taking over from Roger in 2007. We have enjoyed owning the Frostop and raising our little family here in Ashton, Idaho. Wayne was born and raised here. Hannah was born and raised in Homedale and Wilder, Id. We both were raised in the country and our raising our family in the country just outside of Ashton. We have two kids Dalyn & Kyra, they are still in school here at North Fremont. Our Family has become stronger and plan to be here for a long, long time. We built our home in 2004 and bought the Frostop in 2007 and now we have dug our roots in deep. Thanks for your support and come back again soon!!
