“Typically non-chain fast food. Food's okay.”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

Good burger and fries. Prices are a bit high, but expected in a tourist town. The place was packed as it always seems to be when we're there. It's a greasy-spoon kind of place that you know 'it is what it is' as soon as you walk through the door. Shakes and malts are pretty expensive.

“Wow - not sure i have ever seen a place this dirty -”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

stopped in for a quick desert after an earlier dinner in town - walked in and could not believe how dirty the dining room was - the floor was filthy, tables not cleared and sticky. i was so disturbed that i could not order anything - my friends ordered some ice cream and seemed like it was pretty good - but i would be very nervous to order any food cooked in the kitchen if it is anything like the dining room.

“Good Burgers and Ice Cream - on the River !”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

Hard to find many burger joints in Pagosa so you may have to go the Malt Shoppe. The food was good and the place was very busy. There is outdoor seating, which we always look for in the summer - it was 113 in Oklahoma so we were loving Pagosa Springs in August !! It did get a little bit pricey with all the shakes added to the meals, but not too bad.

“Great shakes”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

We always go here when we are in town. Love the view of the river off the back deck. Food is good. Mainly burgers and such. Good shakes and soft serve though.

“A dumpy, dirty place that only has soft serve.”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

Not what I was expecting from the name. They don't even have ice cream so I don't know how they can call it 'old'.
