Nice hamburger(real meat) burger combo. Simple but tasty. Something different. Had black walnut ice cream which is hard to find these days.

Nothing fancy, but a bit nostalgic of 5O's diner. The 1/2 pound cheese burgers we ordered were cooked upon order! Such a selection of ice cream it was tough to decide which for the hand spun milkshakes! Place was clean.. all it needed was a jukebox😎seemed to be home to many regulars... I may just become one myself!

This little shop is a staple of the Sandston community. Great burgers, hotdogs, French fries and best of all.....desserts! Ice cream selections galore...and shakes, malted, etc. always a steady stream of foot traffic from the neighborhood but plenty of parking as well. Close to the Richmond International Airport.....

The place is always hopping!! Lots of flavors of ice cream. Hamburgers and hot dogs and fries seem to be the most popular.

Main draw here per the name is the ice cream, from cones to shakes to sundaes. All the food options are equally good from the subs and gyro's to the Italian offerings with garlic bread. Brothers that own/ run the place are friendly and engaged with the locals/regulars. Prices are good.
