My friends and I stopped in for a delicious shake at one of the oldest businesses in town. I loved the very friendly women working there and the sense of nostalgia. I would like to go back for the banana split! They do have other food on the menu but I had to focus on what was important. It was... More

The best waitresses and burgers around! Travel back in time at this super small town pharmacies Sosa counter. Original tiny booths cuddle you while you chat with locals awaiting the most tasty burger around!

My husband and I couldn't find a place to eat lunch and happened to find this drug store and we noticed that a lot of people were stopping in to eat lunch. So we gave it a try and had some tasty sandwiches for lunch. Very quaint place to visit. We even got a sandwich to go because the first... More

We drive to Dandridge from Pigeon Forge, TN, for several sights, and this drugstore was one of them. It is an old drugstore with a lot of memorabilia, and has a wonderful, small cafe. You can sit at the counter or in a small booth. We ate the Bible burgers which are fairly large hamburgers, loaded!

What a great place, an older pharmacy with fountain and simple diner. You feel as though you are in Mayberry. Very friendly staff and a great place for a hot fudge sundae! It's currently the only place to eat in old Dandridge. Great gifts and sundries. A must see !

I had the cheese burger and it was hand patted and moist. Great spot for home cooking. Great staff. They have daily specials that you will have a hard time choosing which one.

Previous reviews were very misleading. This is a drugstore first and foremost. It is NOT a gift shop. It is very old with very small booths and uncomfortable stools at counter. There is a soda shop in Beaufort SC that is great. We thought this was going to be similar. So disappointed. Ice cream was good but I don't think... More
