Hadn't had an ice cream soda in over 40 years. Definitely was a step back in time. Typical drugstore diner food...BLT, egg salad, etc. but the chocolate ice cream soda sure brought back good memories!

Enjoy a bacon egg salad on toast with chocolate malted shake just like 1950s. The waitress was a little rude but she had more than one customer. Be patient

A great place to get a great sandwich, a wonderful milkshake, or soda. Right downtown Fredericksburg. Good place to just stop and take a break during a downtown trip.

If you miss getting an old fashion (50s/60s) milk shake, go here. My children and now my grand children love this place.

I know the pharmacy hours are different than the fountain but I have supplied a phone number 540-373-9878 to acquire the correct hours of the fountain service. Food is great there but arrive early for lunch. Hope this helps
