Only way to go in WC for a family sit down ice cream parlor experience. I've been here manyy times. Their ice cream is good but the food menu is uninspired. I don't think it has changed for ten years. Teen staff is polite and...More

This place is like going back in time. It has all the good foods from an era long gone. Shakes, burgers, sandwiches are delicious.

This restaurant is like a slice out of the ‘60’s or ‘70’s (except for the prices). It is very cool and comfortable inside; a welcome escape on a hot summer day. We were there for lunch and had the California Chicken Burger and a Chicken...More

The ice cream itself isn't on a par with the gourmet ice cream places that have been opening recently, however it is still very good if you don't want exotic flavors. The regular menu offers some good classic burgers. Usually very crowded on weekends.

We had a quick lunch and the food was really good. Great service and fabulous ice cream! Parking in San Francisco is always a challenge, so if you can, use BART and walk.

This is a great family place. It was always the kid's favorite place to eat. They loved the burgers, I like the crab sandwich.
