“Neat Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We've passed this restaurant several times and each time the parking lot was full, so we decided that if the lot is full that's a sure sign the food is good. Well, the food was great and the atmosphere is really different.
The restaurant is like a huge barn with milking buckets for lights, metal signs all over the walls for years gone by with Ice Cream advertisements all over the place. They do make their own ice cream as well. We ate breakfast, and the meal was very good. They only serve breakfast and lunch, but the menu was plentiful. We will return.

“Great for Ice Cream & more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Probably the best deal for ice cream in the area. A "small" sundae consists of one generous scoop of home made ice cream (many flavors to choose from), syrup, whipped cream & a cherry on top for $2.50. Most of the soups are home made & delicious. The sandwiches are mostly very good & plentiful with the roast beef being a standout, especially if you like it rare as that's the only way it comes. This is a working man/farmer type of place with great ice cream & milk advertising signs plus a collection of many different ice cream scoops from years gone by. The staff is very good & hard working & mostly very pleasant They serve breakfast & lunch.

“jiggers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

while I stop there on occasion for a quick sand I have always been pleased with the food and service sometimes they are overwhelmed but still pleasant. ive been to both places the original as well as the new one. my favorite was and still is THE JIGGER!!! I had this in coxs in downtown Ephrata growing up and this is the only place that has the closet to the original with its secret ing in it word of warning the large is just to large to really enjoy the regular size is perfect. please give it a try almost any food place will have its bad days running out of soup is easy if you think it will be a slow day and a ton of people show up out of the blue it does happen, if your not happy say something to the manager they will work with you.
