They didn't opened until 11:30 (instead of 11 as indicated on the web) because of shortage of staff. Really enjoyed the kraut dog and vanilla malt and my wife a alternate turtle sundae. All was good and the (part) owner and waitress couldn't have been more pleasant. Highly recommend.

We found this treasure several years ago. Although we live 55 miles away, we find every excuse to come here for ice cream when we are anywhere near it. Our favorites are the root beer floats (with their homemade root beer), cherry freeze (cherry soda and vanilla ice cream), chocolate shakes. Sometimes they are very busy and service is slower...

My party ate lunch here and it was not good. We had cheeseburgers. The meat did not taste like fresh beef as advertised and the buns tasted stale. I would not eat here. Stick to the ice cream since reviews are good. The cherry phosphate was good. Service was good.

Old fashioned ice cream in an old fashioned shop, but all the servers are new. Servine shakes, malts and hard to find real chocolate sodas (and other flavors too). Menu looks like it came from a 50's drug store lunch counter but everything is very well done. No soggy buns under your hot dog.

We went here for the first time this weekend and loved it! The milkshakes, sundaes and cream sodas were really good! Will definitely be coming back.

The atmosphere is wonderful, like a walk back in time. The menu is simple but offers something for kids and adults ranging from hot dogs and hamburgers to salads and sandwiches. Mix any two flavors into your soda for a special treat. The green chili hot dog is delicious and you can cool your palate with an old fashioned sundae.... More

What a great little spot! We stopped in on a whim today on our way back to Boulder from Estes Park as we were looking for a spot for lunch. The place was clean and quaintly decorated with items reflecting the restaurants soda shop/diner theme. We were seated and waited on quickly and our young waiter was super nice and... More

This place changed my perception of hotdogs. Ordered Coney Island HotDog - delicious! In off seasons the place will be mostly empty. You can either enjoy the silence or speak to Pat, the owner and he will tell of quite of a lot of a history this 90 years old place has. And don't forget to look at scrapbook. Last... More

Reminded me of my youth, when you could go into a soda fountain and get a soft drink with flavoring, a real ice cream shake or a malt. They offered all of these things, as well as typical soda shop food, such as patty melts and hot dogs. But unlike the old school fountains, they offer a Boca burger option... More
