I was disappointed in the atmosphere here. As I know we visited on a very busy weekend, it was very evident that these folks can’t handle this many people and their stress level was very high. The tempers was showing and we even watched one...More

This place has a lot of history! You could almost picture a teenaged Andy Griffith sitting at the counter (he likely actually did). Old time decor and super ice cream sundaes. The owner stopped by our table and shared some stories. Friendly place in a...More

It was warm that day so we got ice cream. I had the peach ice cream. It was the best I have ever had. Large chunks of peaches in almost every bit. Wonderful!

We thoroughly enjoyed our food here--cheap prices in an area of higher prices. Chili dog was 2.00, Carolina chili cheese burger 4.50 --large menu of various sandwiches. One page of drink flavors. Hand dipped ice cream. Nice people, comfortable. Recommend.
