Doumar's is where the ice cream cone was invented. They still have a working original waffle cone maker at the restaurant. It is interesting to watch them make the cones. Visiting here is like a step back in time.

I ordered a hamburger and it was good, but really nothing special. Of course, with the prices being so low I can't complain too much. It was not the best burger I have ever had, but it still put McDonalds to shame. I didn't try anything else on the menu so there may be better choices.

Doumar's is a place you should visit at least once to experience the history.

We went to Doumar's on our way to the Virginia Beach Aquarium. We have been there before and never been disappointed. We pulled up in our large van with 9 people in tow and parked under the awning for carhop service. We had children with us who had never done this and they were thrilled. Our carhop came out and took our order and, much to the surprise of the kids, did not write down a single thing. Then, out came the order exactly to our specifications. The bbq sandwiches were just awesome, the limeade was a big hit, the fries were yummy and crisp and next time we decided to order ice creams which were just too much for our full tummies. The only glitch was that it was hard to get our bill after we finished. Our server seemed to overestimate the time it takes for a bunch of kids to throw down food.

You can't get a better desserts what they offer, I love their milk shakes, sundaes or banana splits. Doumar's rocks the downstown area!

There's nothing better than driving up for a BBQ sandwich and smelling fresh waffle cones being made. It's a fun place to eat... if only the waitresses were still on roller skates!

The breakfast sandwiches were good but the banna split was just average. The milkshakes were very liquidy.
