It's mostly fried, grilled comfort food. Nothing wrong with that, but personally I wanted healthier options so I looked for stuff I could modify. I ended up eating fries and the lettuce and tomato off my husband's burger and a few fried shrimp, but overall I need to stick to steamed or grilled foods that are low carb. That being... More

We stopped by after a day of geocaching in the Elkins area and ordered custard cones. The man serving us was very friendly and had been geocaching with his boys in their Scout troop, so we stayed for quite a while talking to him and his young assistant. He told us the chili here is famous and served in many... More

Stopped for a quick afternoon snack and some ice cream. The chili dog was great! Restroom was clean. I was looking forward to some dessert, but after they got me my dog they spent 10+ minutes working on the TV trying to get the remote to work I think. It involved one guy standing on the counter with his hands... More

Kids wanted the ice cream/custard. I wanted the hot dogs. We both got what we came for. lol. Kids and wife liked the custard. I liked the dog and chili. Chili was better than the dog but made the dog better. Place was very clean, 50 diners style, and staff friendly. When I come back to Elkins we will stop... More

Everything here was delicious! The chili dog and soft serve were down home yummy; the place was spotless, and counter service West Virginia friendly. If you're looking for comfort food, don't miss it!

I first noticed this place when I first came to Elkins last February, I got excited to visit the place although I'm not a custard fan. Months later, I knew their menu goes even beyond desserts. Today, I had a lunch & an ice cream. Something I would definitely remember.

Best soft serve ice cream we have had. Choose from any combo of the twenty four flavors offered and they make it up for you. Watch out for the "brain freeze" lol!

I'm not one to really go out of my way for a Chili Dog since I grew up eating them more than I wanted to. I decided to stop at this place while visiting the area. Nice and Clean on the inside. Got the Beef Hotdog with Chili, mustard and onions. It was amazing. Chili was very good. I would... More
