I had joked to my sister about eating at Powells Dairy Freeze, but we did and it really was great. We had super burgers, fries and onion rings....and they were all great. When in Starke, go where the locals go! They have outside dining, but we carried our food back next door to the hotel and it was just what... More

Know for its footlong steak sandwich and shakes we love going to this iconic staple of Town. There are many different items on the menu to please everyone including a slaw-dog(just wish it was all beef) I love their fried mushrooms!

As a former long time resident of Starke I grew up eating Powell's. The best shakes , ice cream, burgers , onion rings and so much more. Curve side orders.

This place is a cool drive inn where you can either pull up and someone will take your order at your car or you can order at the window and sit at the picnic tables. I walked over there with my dog from the Best Western Starke and had a nice lunch. The burgers are small sonic you are hungry... More

This past weekend we made a trip over for dessert. I had the banana split and added fudge, my husband had a hot fudge sundae and my son a cookies and cream sundae. Friendly and quick curb side service. I have been going to Powell's for every bit of 30 years always yummy.

LOVE their shakes! It's a small walk up place with picnic tables, but worth the stop. Shakes are rich and creamy. The perfect end to a hot Florida day.

Yep, chicken-fried steak on a foot-long bun with fresh lettuce,tomato and onion. A total road-food delight. Good shakes too. Busy joint. Good service. Burgers and other good junk food.
