I've been eating at Ballard's Iceberg since it opened over 50 years ago. I go for the regular hamburger with a cherry coke and sometimes I splurge on their onion rings. I like to sit in a small booth and read the newspaper, which is always available, and say "Hi" to the locals as they come in. When I really... More

Brings back memories of the good old hamburger joint. Fun nostalgia. Food is OK. Ordered a bag full of burgers, fries, onion rings. Very friendly staff. You'll enjoy the good old days, older place, limited seating, greasy smell, order through the window, OK shakes, what else could you ask for just to bring back the old times.

They have very good milkshakes here. The food is average. The management is kind of grumpy. Nevertheless it is worth a stop for the shakes.

When I drove past this location and saw the sign for Pineapple Dole Whip, I knew I had to come back! Maybe it was the suggestion of summer to my mind. Anyway, I came back later with my family for shakes and we all enjoyed them. The Oreo shake was great, as expected. The Dole whip was good too. The... More

Have been to other Icebergs in Utah and loved their soft serve and got a big cone for the money. Went to Draper's and got the smallest come ever and it wasn't the same go icecream the other locations have.

Fun time with the kids. A little pricey for what you get but tastes pretty good. Brings back some memories of the good old days before the franchise market of stores/restaurants became popular and everywhere.

Iceberg has really great icecream. However, be aware that the sit in dining area is usually not clean and it is very small. But the icecream makes it all worth it.

I've been coming here for over 30 years -before anyone knew where Draper was and before the great influx of people. Ballards has always had great, simple, honest food - but most people come here for the fantastic milk-shakes! Name a flavor and they most likely have it. Portions are large and the prices are cheap. Ballard started as tiny... More
