Good for: Child-friendly
Description: Fast – Delicious – Affordable. Signature items include french fries cut fresh daily, and real dairy custard, frozen on site daily. Said to have the best hot dogs in town, one can load up with a choice of fourteen toppings which, in addition to the old standards, include blue cheese cole slaw and sweet potato mustard! With cheeseburgers, BBQ, our grilled chicken sandwich (think State Fair) and fresh salads, there is something here to please everyone in your group!

We had soup, burger, fries, and a sundae. All food was good, although soup was just lukewarm. The menu offers a great deal of variety. It's a cute place and the prices are right for the area. We enjoyed sitting at the window counter.

Looks like a small, dive of a diner from the outside because its surrounded by "upscale" type bistros and whatnot. This place has friendly people working and awesome food. Just be prepared to wait for a seat if its packed as seating isn't very plentiful but thats part of the location. Its a small piece of Colonial Williamsburg dining and the food is amazing.

The burgers and grilled chicken sandwiches were good, fresh and tasty. The Onion Rings and Fries were delicious. Overall it was a little pricey but it wasn't crowded and it was a nice family restaurant. I would eat here again.

Food was decent and prices were reasonable. We went on a Thursday evening around 7 which I would consider peak time and there was a teenager taking the orders. He acted as if I was a causing him trouble by placing our order. This could be a really neat place it has potential. Right next to campus and up the street from the historic area. Just not the service we have come to expect in Williamsburg.

Husband and I were walking around and wanted to stop for a treat and bathroom break. We both enjoyed sundaes (hot fudge, caramel), and would recommend this spot for those.
