“yummy, what else matters?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

ok $6 for a shake and $10 for a banana split is a lot, but everything is fresh and made onsite. spent $40 on site-made candy too. i was literally a kid in a candy store. if you visit the Strand, you have to visit this store!

“A Galveston trip must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to La Kings every time we are in town for many years. A true old fashioned soda fountain, candy counters, ice cream, old timey tables, and the taffy making machines to watch. If you happen to be there when the taffy is being mechanically twisted into candy wrappers, you may get to catch a piece thrown by the taffy man. What fun! Every kind of candy that you can imagine is sold here, and plenty of sugar free options. You will feel like you have stepped back in time for a delicious sweet treat!

We try to eat breakfast or lunch at the Sunflower every time we get to Galveston. Consistently good. Fresh tasty fare. Cute casual place.

“My favorite place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I have been coming to LaKings since I was a kid. I was really worried after the storm that LaKinds wouldn't come back, and was ecstatic when I saw it re-open. This is a must-do when you are in town.
