Best shakes south of Tampa Bay, and they still serve malted shakes (the powdered malt not the bitter liquid)

A throwback to the 50’s diner. Great burgers, ice cream and other diner type foods. Staff was very friendly. Crowded so may have short wait but worth it. Other customers were nice and thoughtful. Close to outlet mall.
