This is an outside sitting area so you don't have ac but the tables are shaded and there was a nice breeze when we visited. We brought our own drinks so we just needed to buy food. This cheeseburger was out of this world good!!! The taste was amazing with the buns slightly and perfectly toasted! The fries were so... More

Only outdoor seating, walk up to window and order. Food okay,. It is right next to the Fountain of Youth Park, which is very nice place to Visit. Quick place to get a bite to eat.

We had the Cuban Sandwich, Spanish chicken egg roll, and burger. All well done and tasty. The Fountain of Youth was a good to see also!

We grabbed a nice lunch before continuing on our tour of St Augustine. Well made simple food, lots of great (and healthy) choices. Really good seasoned fries!! Two adults and two kids were happy.

Good place to eat after touring the Fountain of Youth. I got a chicken wrap and some great seasoned fries for about $9. The service was great too. They make good sweet tea too which is almost impossible to find in FL.

Traveling with daughter and grandchild who have dietary restrictions makes finding suitable choices at tourist spots challenging. My daughter checked the online menu, and said there was something there she could eat. We arrived right at lunch with school groups on premises, but had no wait. I ordered the turkey club wrap with fries. My daughter ordered mussels with garlic... More

This place could have "mailed it in" and done plain, bland, boring food since it could easily live off of the business from the Fountain of Youth attraction. But they don't! The food is done well and with unique additions like red pepper, pickled onions, and fancy lettuces in their wraps! The fries were seasoned and flavorful and though they... More

You actually pull into the entrance of the Fountain of Youth to park for this place, but you don't need to worry about paying for parking or admission to the Fountain of Youth. That's all we did was just pull in/park there, eat at Five Flags, and leave. At a quick glance you'd assume it's just a snack bar or... More
