“Yummy cherry coke...old time soda shop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great burgers and sodas mixed to your liking. Son loves the shakes there. Everyone is so inviting and friendly. Like an old time soda shop.

“How Could a Hot Dog be this bad?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

I hoped that the food might improve a bit after reopening but it seems that it is worse. How can a restaurant serve such awful hot dogs in a place that used to be know for their hot dogs? They taste like soy dogs and look an awful artificial pinkish-red. Were pretty tasteless even with chili(had to be out of a can with some kind of mystery meat) and onions(which were slimy and old). I don't understand why people continue to go here.

Also, they only accept cash, which to me is a hassle since I don't usually carry it.

“Great Fun Place to Eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I eat here a couple of times a week and you always run into someone you know. Great food and service. Friendly staff. Old time soda shop with a train that the kids enjoy.
Good sandwiches, salads and ice cream.

“I like the old royalls better.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Royalls used to be the place where me and my friends went to hang out but now the staff and food isnt as good. The people locked our bookbags inside after closing early without us knowing.
