This old school joint is awesome! one of the best burgers you'll find Nothing fancy.... There's still pictures in there from the 60's, but good food lasts a long time. This family joint is a MUST.

Dined in for lunch. Not many vegetarian o healthy options. We ended up getting a $13 Greek Salad and a $6 grilled cheese. Very plain decor. Low budget table, chairs, plates, cups etc. Food was good but not what a $13 salad should be. We get bigger salads for the same price at Disney!

I love their milkshakes most of all. They are not open as much as they used to be under Cecil's management. Good burgers and onion rings too.

I went to college at Jacksonville State University and my main burger joint was Cecil's. Thank God Cecil's son still runs the place so I can get my Cecil's on. Get the cheeseburger on texas toast. It has fresh, hand-pattied meat with a chili sauce that is incredible. They also do hand-dipped milkshakes that are unreal. I am fanatical about... More

Love all the food but chili dogs and milkshakes are my favorites. My husband and son love the bacon cheeseburgers, tater tots, and onion rings. Staff is very friendly.

We really enjoy our trips to Cecil's - the old fashioned feel of this ice cream/snack shop is nostalgic. We love the shakes, the cups of ice cream (HUGE!), the chicken fingers, and the friendly service.

Cecil's has always been a favorite of my family from the time I was a little girl. Their hamburgers are devine and their Ice Cream and Shakes are the best in the county.
