No. I have not had enough lemonade to have a well-informed opinion on lemonade. But there it is folks--take it or leave it. Every time I've been it's been crowded with barely enough seating, but it always seems to work out. There's outdoor seating too....More

On a tour of Williamsburg, we were looking for some lunch and found this place. We got hot dogs and a burger and needless to say, there was nothing exciting about either. I did like the fries and a pretty good shake.

The food itself is okay, but is the staff trained to be unfriendly? Just can't figure out why it is that no matter how many times we eat at this place, they just aren't friendly. Guess it's time to eat elsewhere.More

Enjoyed a bowl of the vegetarian chili! Nice to find a reasonably priced meal and one that is meatless! Inside is not fancy but comfortable plus can eat outside!

Retro's is attempting to provide guests with a "throwback" experience of the good ole' days of burgers, fries, hot dogs and milk shakes in a diner atmosphere. For me, it fell short of the goal. The two dining areas were messy, with wobbly tables and...More

Each time we visit Williamsburg we try to include a visit to Retro's. They are excellent at the basics . . . hamburgers, hot dogs, and fries. They also serve a wide variety of shake flavors. Located between Colonial Williamsburg and the University of William...More

As food is a bit expensive, this place has a little of everything and excellent prices. It's like walking into a 50s diner. It solved my hunger twice.

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!
