“Sandston Bistro and Shakes is always friendly, fast and fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

The Shake Shop became Sandston Bistro and Shakes in 2005 when the current owners bought the business. they serve sandwich specials, salads, lasagna, subs, and numerous flavors of Hersheys ice cream. We ate there today and had the turkey burger special that was a nice size turkey patty with lettuce and tomato, and also the chef salad. the lasagna is very good, the hamburgers are highly recommended. As for the ice cream, my favorite flavors are royal red velvet and chocolate amaretto and moose tracks and the list goes on! Quick service, freshly made food, and the owners always appreciate your business and let you know. During extended power outage in the area a few years back, the owners set up a generator and got back in business feeding very hungry neighbors, and that was very much appreciated. Really nice people serving very good comfort food. The decor is a bit dated, but that adds to the down home charm.

“Sandston Bistro and Shakes is pretty good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

We go here mainly for the shakes and they do a great job making them. I wish they had more ice cream flavors, but they have a decent selection. We usually get the chocolate shakes. I like their corn dogs - great taste. I had a steak and cheese sub once, but don't like the way they make it, but others may love it so whatever. Same with the cheese fries in that the "cheese" is the ummm cheez-wiz stuff and I was thinking cheddar cheese so I don't get those anymore either. Will be trying more stuff to see what else I like. Anyway, give this place a "go" and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

“Decent cook-out style food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

The food quality was not bad, comparable to fast food establishments, but the prices were higher for the same value. Had a burger and fries and enjoyed the meal.

Will visit again, but the value could be improved.
