Can’t go wrong with a classic greasy burger and a malt (or shake)! We actually had corny dogs this time with waffle fries. Sister had a chocolate malt and I got coffee - so good! This is another classic spot where me stop for lunch...More

Food is "fair" at Best and Overpriced for sure! Not a very good cheese burger by my standards, shake was small (tasted OK). Overpriced, even for tourist city

This is a small, throwback type of malt shop that serves not only ice cream but burgers, patty melts, fries, onion rings. etc. I've been here a few times and have always had great food and service. Family friendly.

The ice cream is good and usually worth the wait. Sometimes however, the wait is more than 1/2 hour. That is too long.

Went for breakfast. Nobody on the restaurant but us. Waited 40 minutes to be served. My hubby and I ordered eggs over well. My eggs had snot (runny white) and runny yolk. Should have sent it back but didn’t. I will not be back.

While visiting in Pagosa Springs we had a "hankering" for a malt or milk shake. We mad a U-turn and hit the Malt Shop. I had a salted caramel shake and it was, as they say...yum yum. Fair prices, and a good treat on a...More

I had a vanilla milkshake and found it very good. I came here multiple days to get it. I did not try the food, but the ice cream is really good. This is your place for ice cream in Pagosa.

This is the type of place you hope to find when you’re on the road, when you are just longing for a good burger and shake. That’s exactly what we found here. I loved the thick chocolate shake and the bacon cheeseburger was crunchy good....More
