So don't expect cloth napkins or white table cloths. This is an old fashioned drive in. You burgers and fries will come in a paper boat. Picnic table seating, and kids running around with ice cream cones. Just a quick, fun, tasty stop. Just like...More

I used to live around the corner from this place and my cousin and I rode our bikes there for ice cream! To this day it's still awesome. It's pricey for sure, but the quality is there. The line can be out to the road...More

If you want a quick bite to eat, or a classic diner feel outside, then this is the place for you. It's popular, but the wait is never too long. Ice cream flavors change every week, keeping vanilla and chocolate available to you always, as...More

Fresh cut, fresh battered, deep-fried, amazing Onion Rings! That's all the reason you need go there. There's plenty of other drive-in fare from cheeseburgers to grilled mahi-mahi. It's a Clifton Park tradition that absolutely requires a trip or three over the summer.

Such an icon in seasonal food venues. The menu is simple offering quality fast food. The ice cream, dole whip, frozen yogurt and dips change weekly. A bit pricey but well worth the trip. Cash only FYI!

This place is the best fried food in the capital region, the burgers are awesome and so is the fish fry. I'd suggest to put salt on the fries. Th ice cream here is very convinient and it's also very delicious! Great Place!
