“A real taste of nostalgia!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This place was a real trip back to my childhood. It's actually an old Tastee Freeze building with a similar menu and some really good ice cream. The area of town doesn't look the greatest but it was still worth stopping in for a treat.

“Decent local burger place”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

I like going to local places like this. The place hasn't changed in decades. A great way to get a taste of the local flavor. The burgers aren't anything fantastic, but are pretty good. The onion rings are very good. The shakes are also very good. They have outdoor seating or you can sit in your car and a car hop will come to you.

“Wanna taste of Americana?"”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

What attracted me was not the fact that this was obviously a very old restaurant, but, the "CURB SERVICE" sign. How many of you even know what this is?....................Courteous service and a footlong hot dog with onions and chili walked out to your car by an employee who enjoys serving you.............

“Old School burger.”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

I go to Starke a few times a year to see a friend and this is one of those hole in the walls places that just have good food. I always get a burger, it's thick with lots of flavor with fries and milk shake. It's the type of food and service that you get at home, with a family type feel. They come out to your car and take your order and also deliver the food to your car.

“One of the Best Milkshakes”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

I have been driving through Starke for years and noticed that the old drive in ~ Powells Dairy Freeze ~ always had lots of cars ~ a sign of a good "mom and pop" drive in ~ finally, this week, I stopped ~ they have a car hop that comes to take your order ~ the three of us each ordered a regular hamburger and a chocolate shake ~ then we ordered one large fry to share. The hamburger was good and just the right size (not too big or greasy) ~ the shake was the best we had ever had and the fries were plenty for the three of us and were very good ~ large cut cooked crisp and not greasy ~ we will return on our next trip through Starke, Florida ~ love and prefer mom and pop over the chains anyday of the week!
