“Good ice-cream, great decor...”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I ordered a milkshake and the girl who took my order was friendly and made it pretty fast. While she worked I read a bunch of the articles on the wall from old local news stories, it was very interesting.

The shake was great and the sandwiches looked good as well.

“Great Local Sandwhich Place with character, quick service & resonable prices.!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

We discovered this local spot by accident, and found it to be the ideal stop for a quick lunch when in the Smithfield area. We traveled through Smithfield to the coast and since we had not been there before, decided to stop for lunch. While there are an assortment of restaurants, we were looking for somehting local, not a tourist stop, and something quick. This place hit the spot! They have a wide variety of hot and cold sandwhiches (including BBQ), and food was delivered very quickly. You order at the counter, and the menu is posted on the back wall. The building appears to be an old soda foundtain or something similiar, and stilll has a counter with stools, a row of booths, tables and outdoor seating. In addition, it is an ice cream parlor; we did not try the ice cream but noticed that they even offered sandwhich specials which include ice cream after dinner. I think we were the only non-locals in the place, as everyone seeded to know each other. We even noticed a sign that said you get a free ice cream sundae on your birthday. We stopped on our return trip through the area, and found it to again be the right choice for us.
