Maybe this is a place you have to grow up with, but although shockingly cheap, the food is average at best except for the ice cream. What makes this place is the great service and speed your dishes come out.

The food is very good (hamburger, cheeseburger, Taylor pork roll, steak sandwich, Ringo shake- no complaints). The car hop service - nostalgic, service was good. But be prepared if you go inside for service. We went inside, and let's just say I quickly noticed that...More

Doumar's originated the hand made waffle cone. The menu is basic Americana, but cooked fresh for you. Eat up your cherry-limeade, bbq or ribeye steak sandwich, and finish with ice cream in a hand-made cone. Enjoy your meal from a real car-hop by turning your...More

The food is always really really good. Every time you go the food is exactly the same. It reminds of when I was young. I really miss Mr. Doumar making the cones everyday.

Food is good but very basic. Prices are very good. Milkshakes are awesome. I had a banana milkshake that had actual real banana pieces in it.

This is the coolest place in town. Doumar's has been here longer than I've been alive. Longer than most people here have been alive. An awesome old-fashioned drive-in restaurant where you use your headlights to signal you're ready to order. You eat in your car...More
