There food wasn't very good and it isn't worth the trip to get ice cream. Won't go back, I have found ice cream in stores that are as good

If you're looking for a throwback, classic American diner - then Doumar's is it!! Make sure you order a chocolate milkshake, some fries and a Mince with Slaw pulled pork sandwich!! Can't be beat!!

I've been coming here since I was a child and love it as much now as then. Same great atmosphere and the food is still terrific. Best milkshakes on earth.
