“Good Place For Lunch & A Trip Down Memory Lane”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Want a delicious cheeseburger with crunchy onion rings or crisp fries, washed down with a hand mixed milkshake? Then this is the place! It is like stepping back in time. I love this place because of that. Bar stools along counters with booths tucked in between. Good, friendly, hard working wait staff serve you hot baskets of deliciousness. I always order the same thing...cheeseburger with the works, sometimes onion rings - sometimes fries with a chocolate milkshake. It's good every single time I order it. And I've been there too many times to mention. A must for visitors. Really. Especially kids. The kid meals are gracious and yummy and served in paper old fashioned cars....nothing like hot, delicious chicken strips in a classic Chevy. Be prepared to wait for a place to sit at lunch though. It's worth the wait.

“This place is great for a cool lunch...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

I have visited this lunch counter twice now and the food is excellent. The menu is pretty basic--burgers, BLT's, hot dogs, grilled cheese, fries, salads, soups, sandwiches, and ice cream. They have the red spinning stools, a few booths, Coke napkin holders, and it is just a fun place. Lots of people come for lunch! This day I had a tuna melt and hot fudge sundae, and DD had a burger and root beer float. All good! Service is friendly. Prices very fair. Bathrooms OK. Parking on street or back lot.

Very highly recommend!

“Great local restaurant, takes you back in time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

We have been going to New Smyrna Beach for 3 years now in the winter. We have checked out the popular places on 44 and Flagler, but were looking for places the locals hang out. I had read reviews, so we decided to try it out. They run coupons in the local "Keys to our city" available at the visitors bureau and also several shops downtown. It was a fun experience sitting next to people on fountain bar stools, and visiting. The waitress was very friendly and prompt. I had a fish sandwich which was very good, my husband had a corned beef sandwich which he said was very good as well. The ice cream sundae's looked fabulous. A cute fun place for lunch, we will go again.

“Dissappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

We were sorely dissappointed at the quality and prices. We just moved to the area and were so excited at the idea of an old fashioned drug store with a lunch counter. We gave it 2 tries. The food is sub-standard and pricey. The ice cream had ice in it. I just think the venue is fabulous and a terrific opportunity for someone with a little imagination. Everything should be homemade as it was back then when these drug stores were in every town.

“Blast from the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

If you want a retro experience you have to go to Littles. This place has been around for decades and hasn't changed. This is like being in American graffiti. Soda fountain is awesome and the decor is right out of the fifties. It is a truly functional pharmacy as well as a drug store. This place has great burgers and awesome hand made milk shakes. Definitely worth the experience, get your poodle skirts on and slick you hair back.
