What we ordered: My companion and I had already eaten dinner elsewhere, so we decided to split a Strawberry Malt, which was served in two small paper cups. The malt was very good, it had plenty of strawberry chunks as well as rich malt powder blended in, too thick to sip through a straw. It was topped with whipped cream, making it extra creamy
Service: We didn’t have to wait long at the Take-Out Window before placing our order and our malts were ready in about 3-4 minutes.
Overall Impression: The malts were great and I am sure the burgers are too. I will be back again to have a burger and onion rings in addition to another ice cream treat!
