“Best soft-serve in Essex County”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Best soft-serve in Essex County in 1950s style drive-in restaurant. Great stop en route to or from Point Pelee. Foood is average but chocolate dipped soft serve is awesome and great value for money though prices have gone up in past 10 years. Summer has arrived when DF opens.

“Great summer food and fantastic ice cream treats”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Very busy during the warm weather....... probably because they are so popular with Essex county residents. They have an excellent menu board of ice cream cones and cups, both soft and hard., sundaes, banana split treats and nice summer dinner menu from your traditional burgers, hot dogs and fries as well as dinner plates.
Great atmosphere either indoors or out, The kids will love it.

“LANDMARK EATERY”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This place has been serving soft ice cream and great hamburgers, fries and all the other great things we should not be eating but we all do anyway. It would be unusual to find a local who could drive past this place without stopping. Still have car service as well as a walk up window and plenty of chairs and tables to accommodate many.
