The sundae and banana splits are awesome and large. My wife and I shared a sundae and it was more than both of us could consume. Took it home and finished it off over the next two days. Service is friendly.

Enjoyed a fun lunch experience and good food today at the Pokey Dot. The decor makes for a fun atmosphere; the bright colors just make for a happy time. But the food is also very good and large portions. I always enjoy the chicken salad for my lunch and can always (easily) take half of it home for the next... More

Waste of money. Food comes out cold. Found hairs in food. Bathroom was always unclean. The meals always took way too long to come out and were extremely over priced. Would NOT recommend the friend.

The atmosphere is fun and quirky. If you haven't been there, it's worth the visit just for that. Food is excellent, and service is too. They are famous for their giant ice creams.

The food here is always delicious and plentiful! The menu has such a variety of choices and it's ALL good! Their desserts are huge and always worth taking part of your meal home so you have room for dessert!

Not sure why it has 2-3 $$$, because it is affordable. We had the chicken wrap and Reuben sandwich with fries and it was very good. The desserts look incredible, but we are not dessert people. Fun looking place, even the bathroom mural makes you smile. Fun for kids too. It was very busy and some groups left because they... More

We have been here several times and enjoyed the food. It's a clean 50s style restaurant. Neon lights all around with an old record jute box. Table or counter style eating with white tile.

The Poky dot is well decorated and has a 60's diner type of setting. There is a front room which is most often used but overflow will move into the back room. The big breakfast is too big for most people to finish alone. The Banana split is too big for four or five to finish. I was told that... More

This place has style. It was recommended by a friend who said that they often go here for lunch. The restaurant was very colorful and was decorated for halloween. The tables were cleaned and set up as soon as they became available. Each hamburger was about $10. We tried the southwest, raspberry kiss and french onion burger. Each of these... More
