“High priced eating”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The burgers are good, but not at that price. We paid $24 and some odd cents for 2 plain burgers (no cheese), 2 orders of French fries, 2 small malts......to me that is high priced fast food eating!!

“Malt Shop”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Excellent sandwiches...really good fast food. Like the freshness of the items and the fast service. At busy times not enough tables but that is no problem.

“New Owner, New Prices, Oh My!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

The Malt Shop has been an iconic attraction in South Fork for several years, but it has recently gained a new owner who has made some significant changes. She has raised the prices considerably, and somehow lowered the taste of the food. Admittedly a good burger requires good beef. However the new owner is serving a product that is so lean it has little taste and absolutely none of the juiciness that is the hallmark of a good burger.

The buns have changed and even the hot dogs have slipped in quality.

Unfortunately, the Malt shop is the only place of its kind in South Fork so you are sort of stuck if all you want is a quick burger & an shake. Just be prepared to pay more and enjoy it less.

“Fair”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Slow slow slow service. Average burger, fair fries, you can sit outside under canvas covers. Prices are okay. It is not fast food.

“Perfect Timing For A Snack”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here when were heading to Durango. It is a roadside hamburger and shake stand. We all had shakes but did not try the food. The shakes were good and were made quickly. The closest restrooms are in the park next door. We would stop here again.
