We just returned to our favorite hometown retro diner/soft-serve ice cream shop after being away in Chincoteague for a week, and confirmed our view that Retro's chocolate custard is the best we've eaten. The vanilla custard is also wonderful. Still, while we had vanilla soft serve that was nearly as good elsewhere, no other place we tried had chocolate that was as creamy and richly flavored as Retro's. Try the chocolate dipped cones and hot fudge if you feel like embellishing your custard. We are also fans of Retro's hamburgers (especially the bacon cheeseburger), chili, fries, and limeade. The name says it all--this little restaurant is decorated like a classic diner with aluminum chairs, formica tabletops, and lots of vintage photos of Williamsburg and delivers tasty diner-style favorites quickly. If you remember (and miss) the old lunch counter and soda fountain at the old Williamsburg Drug Store (which used to be where the Williams-Sonoma store now is), you will enjoy Retro's Good Eats.
