We stopped here at the conclusion of a hot bicycle ride up and over the McKenzie Pass. It has been a right of passage for bicyclist for four decades - and the Sno Cap looks unchanged. The ice cream is good, but waiting inside is hot and stuffy. My ice cream was barely still "frozen" when served. They desperately need... More

Lines out the door. Signs indicated they were short-staffed and it did affect speed of service. Still, the burger was great and the red raspberry milkshake was on point!

Sno Cap is a landmark in Sisters. If you are ever in town you must stop in and get an ice cream. It's an authentic 1950s drive in with black and white checkered floor and greasy grimey fast food: hot dogs, burgers, halibut fish n chips, ice cream and shakes, meals ranging from $5-$12. My husband ordered a single scoop... More

There's a reason you see a line up outside the door, it's fabulous! Tasty burgers and old fashioned milkshakes with homemade ice cream in all kinds of flavors. This is a must stop treat for the whole family! Summer months are insanely busy, so be prepared to wait as everything is freshly made.

This is a small restaurant. We like to order our burgers and malts to go, then take them to a nearby park with picnic tables set up next to the river. The food and malts are good. The service is fast. Parking is tricky, as there is not very much of it.

Stopped here on advice of our youngest son who had heard great things about the Sno Cap. Used the walk-up ice cream/ shakes line and quickly made our way through the line. Was not disappointed. Generously sized milk shakes and ice cream cones. Multitude of flavors available. Would highly recommend after a day of hiking or just for a well... More

A true American experience - small diner, great burgers and fries, as well as excellent milkshakes! Always have a great experience. Friendly service, items made just for you. The fresh fruit milkshakes - yum! We stopped for dinner for the start of our trip. And, picked up milkshakes for the drive home.

Stopped by Sno Cap and had a double scoop on a waffle cone. The Rocky Road was perfect as was the Salted Carmel. First time I've been there but the menu reminded me of a Dairy Queen with burgers, fries, and Ice Cream every way imaginable. The service was friendly and the treats were great. Highly recommend especially on a... More

Husband and I were craving ice cream on a warm afternoon. We had driven by Sno Cap on the way into Sisters and remarked how much it reminded us of a drive-in in the town we both grew up in. We were right. We both ordered the homemade ice cream sundaes. Mine was kona coffee with hot fudge. The ice... More

And there is ALWAYS a wait. The burgers appear hand made and are quite good. But, everyone will ask you if you had a milkshake. Be sure you do!
