We've been stopping here for decades (literally) even as the Malta Shoppe has gone through owner changes. Wide selection of shakes and malts. An evening staple during our stays in South Fork.

We've driven by a number of times, and the tables are always full. So, I was looking forward to a good burger and shake. What I got was a tasteless burger (pre-packaged/not 100% beef), ok fries, and an ok shake, ALL overpriced! Would I return? NO!!!!! Not worth it.....

The green chile cheeseburger is the best. The fries were tasty and the chocolate malt yummy. It's a walk to the restroom. There was great service.

Nice place to stop for lunch! We had a variety of items: elk burger, cheeseburger, fish, and chicken baskets. All was very good! We come every time we come through South Fork. Don't forget to grab a shake or malt before leaving!
