I thought I was back in the sixties. Walk up ice cream and not so quite fast food joint. The prices are unbelievable - e.g. $1.50 shakes, floats and sundaes; $1.75 footlongs with coney sauce; $1.75 fish sandwich, etc. Only walk up service. Place your order at window, wait and pay when they call out your order. We went around... More

Love their milkshakes. This place was recommended by a friend. You can make your own shake flavors. I prefer marshmallow and chocolate in my shake. Yumm.

If you would like a foot long hotdog, a barbecue sandwich, a corn dog, a milkshake or soft ice cream etc., this is the place to go. And you will not believe the unbelievably low prices! It is close to the antique shops and the beautiful Murals. Located on Second Street close to the bridge, it is a great place... More

Best footling hot dogs in Portsmouth. Actually best footling hot dogs anywhere!!!! Good food at cheap prices. Little crowded sometimes, but well worth the wait.

Get a huge tasty shake for $2. Or get a malt. Or a cone. Just get there. Service is friendly and quick. Food is also available, but go for the ice cream.

This is your old fashion, get out of your car, go to the window, order, wait a few minutes, and pay. We had 2 fish sandwiches, very good, and a footer with sauce, 2 small vanilla shakes and a cup of water for $8.50. Can't beat that price for 3 people to eat and it was good.

When I was a kid, my parents loved to take car trips. We drove from Ohio to California a couple of times on route 66. The things I remember on those trips are the little shops and tourist traps along the way. My favorites were the little dairy shops. This place so much reminds me of those places! It's a... More

I grew up in Portsmouth and traveled right by 2nd street Dari-bar on my way to Branch Ricky park and surrounding softball fields. Known for their foot-long hot-dogs, the fries and onion rings were also just as good. I remember the deserts too. Banana Splits were my favorite with the milk shakes a close second. I moved away 35 years... More

So I read the reviews and people keep stating that these are the best Footlongs. Well, I'll be the judge of that. . . . . So, yes, they are pretty darn good. One thing that makes you really interested in this place is the sheer number of people waiting. That must be good. And they are fast for a... More

This local landmark is the by far they cheapest lunch you can find which is why most days you will have to stand in line for your food. Best pineapple milkshakes!
