The first time I ate at King of the Frosties, I was 10. Now I'm much older and the food, value and atmosphere hasn't changed. We had a Burger Platter, fries and a sundae for dessert. Very affordable and big enough to share. I highly recommend this place.

The King of the Frosties is a sentimental favorite of those folks who call Speculator "home" during the summer months. Situated in the southern Adirondacks, this place is a wonderful reminder of the mom and pop luncheonette of olden days, where the waitresses all call you "honey," and the specials are written on a chalkboard over the counter.

This place does not offer fancy fare; if you want to get dressed up in anything more than a T-shirt and jeans, go someplace else. But if you want to walk off the lakefront beach and grab a really tasty sandwich and fries, this place is great. An ice cream stand is incorporated into the same building, and has a window for take-out cones.

The King of the Frosties is also well-known for their breakfasts, and I've often scarfed down their superb omelettes and hash browns after spending a few days hiking in the local woods. Everyone knows everyone else there, and the "hominess" of the customers makes the place feel even warmer.

Give this place a try if you're passing through on Route 30. Just don't be surprised if your waitress sends you off with a smile and a wink.

King of the Frosties or just Frosties as it is affectionately known is one of two diners in town. While the food is good it isn't great, however, the friendliness of the staff, and extremely quick service and large dining area more than make up for it. Frosties has a good breakfast selection, and features a chocolate chip pancake for the kids complete with a smiley face. They also have an excellent sausage link that I've never tasted the likes of anywhere. Lunch is only so-so, but dinners are pretty good. There are usually specials featured 2-3 times per week during the summer that come with dessert. The Wednesday pizza buffet is a great value for those who want something different. Frosties ice cream is the real deal as well. While they don't have as many flavors as the place up the street it is better quality ice cream.
