We just stopped in for root beer floats and was amazed at the options. They have a wide variety on the menu. Mostly American Classic options. We ended up ordering cheese fries as well. The ice cream tastes homemade. We will be back for their speciality burgers! My neighbor raves about their breakfast. Waitress was nice and a hard worker.... More

Went to get a root beer freeze and a burger, got to admit the new owners are running it better than the 2nd owners, Food isn't that bad, it's alot better than mcdonalds but that's not saying much. Friendly environment and nice staff, clean bathroom and still one of the best root beer freezes ice ever had!

Larry's was built on the foundation of being an ice cream house. Now they make their ice cream with milk and powder. We tossed our sundaes in the trash. Pathetic

Love the family friendly atmosphere. Great burgers, fries and shakes. Mom and Pop would be proud of the quality food.

This used to be a nice home town restaurant but it was sold. The quality and service totally changed. The price became ridiculous for the quality of food. Two words: never again!

This is low quality american food. The service isn't very good, but the staff are friendly. Locals come for the ice cream at night.

I can live without the too greasy food, but the awesome shakes are a family tradition for curing throat infections & tears from immunization shots.

Good spot for a quick breakfast. Cheap, good food. Typical local old-fashioned diner sums this place up perfectly.

Don't be fooled by the reviews; this is not the Larry's that it once was, new owner, so sad. Went there every Saturday for years and we never had a complaint. Today ordered mushroom (canned gross) burger and chili cheese fries, they put my fries in the microwave to warm up the watered down chili which cost close to 5... More
