A blast from the past! Always a favorite for visitors and locals alike. They have quite the variety of foods for a traditional soda shop type place, though the best foods are the more common staples of these type of places. However, the ice cream (and milkshakes!) are to die for! Highly recommend, especially on hot summer days.

If you like burgers, hot dogs, fries, shakes, ice cream and more it is all here. Service is good and staff is friendly. Local themed choices, I like the Vicki's cheeseburger. The gambler and bowl of cheese are good. Leave room for ice cream and the banana split is a meal in itself! It can get busy and chaotic with... More

Believe closed till 18 July, too bad we drove out there to find a sign on the door. Been there many times before always good. Should have called ahead.

The burgers and comfort food at this place is excellent! It's like walking back in time with the old timey booths and deco. It's a great ice cream place too and the shakes are spun up the old fashion way. This place is usually hoppin', but it's always worth the wait!

The staff, food and decor is really awesome! Staff is always friendly. Have lots of choices for food, curly fries are the best I ever had and the banana split is HUGE and so yummy! The decor is made up of old photos of Pittsboro and Pharmacy/Medical supplies, really neat to look at.

I do not go to the Soda Shoppe often, but when I do my order is always the same - foot long hotdog & chocolate milk shake (the old fashioned kind). Both delicious, but the shake is as good as I have ever had and really is 2 shakes since they give you the remains in the silver mixer too.... More

The Soda shoppe is a unique old fashioned grill. They have a nice variety of sandwiches and you have to try the ice cream.

How have I not been here before now, this place is so cute! My family tried the Gambler and Lasagna that are the old Rathskeller (chapel Hill) recipes and they were spot on! They have perfected these recipes so if you were a fan you should definitely go! Our daughter had the corn dog bites and fries and loved them.... More

Disappointed. We traveled a distance to check out the shoppe. The lime-ade was not available, because the limes were 'too expensive.' I ordered the orange-ade instead. It is a glass of crushed ice, with a couple squirts of juice added, and filled with 'soda water'. The soda water had no fizz, which made it a very watered down orange juice... More
