My friends and I stopped here before leaving the beach and I ordered a double bacon cheeseburger, fries w/ gravy, and a fresh squeezed orange-aid drink. The burger was very good, and you could tell they patty their own burgers! The fries were decent and the orange-aid was very good! And all of that was less that $10. So all in all it's good food for a pretty cheap price.

Very clean, good quality food, great atmosphere. Loved the vintage feel. The Philly cheese steak comes highly recommended! Very reasonably priced and very kid friendly!

This place is like walking into the "old time soda shop". Lots of memorabilia and 2 juke boxes that still play 45's. We ate the Delight burger, all the way and it was excellent. It has 2 hamburgers side by side on a hoagie roll that was so soft it just mashed in between your fingers. Also, we had hand squeezed old timey "orange aide". WOW. Don't miss it. The ice cream was fantastic, the waitress was fantastic and the owner came out to our table and chatted with us. Loved this place.

I'm so confused by these "excellent" reviews. Nothing about this place was excellent. We stopped in for ice cream. First problem: terrible parking lot. We had no issues but a guy was backing out when another customer was coming in & car horn honking ensued. Not pleasant. Second problem: rude servers who gave us conflicting information about where to wait for ice cream. They were not nice at all and the guy helping us was staring out the window as he took our orders. Very strange... Ice cream was nothing special. Hershey's... which we can get pretty much anywhere near us. Won't go back.
