The best hot fudge sunday in the area! Relax and enjoy this drive in! Quiet spot in the shade to sit by the stream and watch the ducks! You wont be disappointed by the food. California burger was delicious! Fast service, friendly staff!

Very busy drive in with picnic tables and a stream. Cheesesteaks, burgers and fries are simple, like days gone by. The ice cream is rich and creamy and their thick milkshakes are the best! Stop in and enjoy a little area tradition.

We stopped here upon recommendation from several people while spending the weekend in Adamstown. The line was long, but the good service kept it moving quickly. We didn't find the ice cream to be anything special. The selection (maybe about 30 flavors) was pretty standard,...More

To my recollection (and that's all it is), I believe that today, Labor Day, may be the last. Boehringer's is dependent on school age staff, so this might be it.
