Lived on Alder Terrace while going to Jr. High to High school, and my dad would take my brother and I there all the time. It has always had a special place in my heart, but now the wife and I bought a house up on Lake View, right accross the street up a ways, and I can't wait to go back and enjoy the delicious food and treats. What a great place and great people! If you ever go up to Arrowhead, stop by for lunch or at least a malt. It is worth it!
Athough it has changed ownership over the years it is still a favorite when visiting the mountains. First went there in the 1950's. Lived on the mountain but moved to the beach. When I lived there I was a regular. Now, I only get to enjoy the great classic hamburger, fries and malts when I visit. You can bet that I will always stop in when visiting. Love this place. Just like a tom-tom, you can't beat it!
Loved our Burgers! Classic, overloaded and delicious. Fries are fresh cut and delicious. Better than In and Out IMO. The side salad, as a healthy alternative to the fries is also classic, in other words it's not healthy. Ask them to hold the croutons and cheese and ask for extra tomatoes. I also would have ordered the double-double with Swiss instead of American and asked that it be medium rare. What I ordered was delicious. It's where the locals eat, so that should tell you something about the quality that has kept them in Business since 1946. Good value, great food, nice 50's ambiance.
My mom's uncle took me here while I visited California from Iowa. He's very in to the history of the Arrowhead area and this was the place he wanted me to see. Great burgers and shakes and a charming atmosphere! Loved it!
Awesome burgers and even better malts!! Every time I ride my motorcycle up there (at least twice a year), we stop at the Malt Shop and have a wonderful meal. I would like to try the PB&J cheese burger though. Def. worth the drive just to eat there!!! =D
They don't have any napkins. But they do have rolls of heavy duty absorbent towels on each table to soak up the mess created from the best cheeseburgers in the universe! I prefer the Corvette, but there are still many other choices on the menu. I haven't had a milkshake there yet, on account of I got so stinkin' full, but I bet it's worth more than it's weight in gold just like everything else on the menu!
...there aren't too many places that'll fill you up with such great burgers, fries and, my favorite, a great malted milkshake. even though it's a bit on the pricy it's a must when you are on the mountain. enjoy!
