Prior reviews are correct- friendly, unique diner with great selection of ice cream sodas. Regular menu is limited, but kids will love this place. Staff is very talkative and friendly.

Stay for the food. Good old fashioned floats, a throwback to yesteryear. Have eaten here at least three times, worthwhile.

This is an original old school soda fountain where you can get virtually any ice cream concoction you can dream of. And, they sell Thrifty ice cream which is the best.
They're food is decent, but the desserts and decor are what's worth stopping for.
