This place is packed at lunch and for good reason! Even when it's a packed lunch rush they get you seated pretty quickly. The chicken salad and sweet potato fries are AMAZING! You won't be sorry you ordered either of these! Great service and neat little connecting gift shop. I make excuses to stop by this place for lunch!

My wife and I stopped in today for lunch. Both had the southern burger and split an order of fries. Great burgers and service. Just wish I had left room for a milkshake. Maybe next time.

Poor food, poor service, and the chips were in a bag that was just literally thrown on the table. I'm sorry we didn't just pack a picnic lunch and head up the road to the state park

For those that remember the old grill type restaurants from the 70's this is kind of that place. Don't come in a hurry come to enjoy your meal and time with friends or family.

My husband and I split the Georgia burger (with grilled peaches) and the Deep South burger (with fried green tomato, ranch dressing & pimento cheese ~ better than it sounds :)) ~ kids had cheeseburgers and a Philly cheesesteak sandwich ~ we all split chili cheese fries and ordered sodas and one milkshake ~ the burgers were all delicious and...

After reading the reviews then visiting The Soda Fountain Cafe in Cleveland - there must be two and we went to the wrong one. Nothing on the menu is "homemade". What an opportunity they are missing here. Come on - make your own fries or chips. Use fresh chicken for your fingers or sandwiches for heavens sake. The frozen burgers... More

We were here visiting Helen and found this place on TripAdvisor. It is not disappoint. I had the Deep South Burger and my husband had the Georgia Burger. All of it was excellent!

Delicious! My husband got the Georgia burger (with grilled peaches!) and I got a burger with pimento cheese. The meat was so fresh and tender. We shared an order of onion rings and a brownie sundae. We will be back! :)

Just happened to stumble upon this little restaurant located inside a small town pharmacy while out shopping with my sister. We came back that evening for dinner and discovered that the place was full of locals, especially seniors. We loved our burgers and Mahi-Mahi sandwich. I also enjoyed my fresh-squeezed orange-aid. I noticed the food on some of the other... More

It was a blast from my past to see a drug store soda fountain. The food has never been bad. We try something new each time. The burger with peaches on it is great.
