On the way from the Park Road area to South Park, I stopped by the Soda Shoppe to pick up a quick lunch for my wife and I to eat outside and enjoy the spring weather. I got the grilled chicken sandwich for her, with cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions as a side. I chose the grilled chicken club with fries.... More

Excellent burgers, fries and 50's theme. The owners and staff work hard with a smile! I have been going here for more than a decade. The grilled chicken, grilled cheese or the French fries will keep you coming back. They always have some amazing ice cream flavor, or just the brownie sundae will make you smile!

I have been taking people here for years and my son loves the burgers too. We usually get ice cream because they have fresh flavors and make excellent shakes and malts. The help us always in a good mood, the coke is old fashioned from the fountain and the salads are good if you are trying to eat healthier. If... More

Fun diner with better than average food. Burgers, fries, hot dogs, salads, ice cream. 1950's feel, small and intimate.

Eating at The Soda Shoppe is like dropping in on old friends. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. The service is fast. The food tasty short order fare. Our favorite items are the chicken fingers with a side salad and fries. Seating is limited, but the staff quickly clears tables to allow for a fast turnaround of diners.

Food is decent. Atmosphere is cool. Nice to take a kid to eat a sandwich. Service is very good. It's always packed. It's small and only seats maybe 30.

On this visit I had a foot long dog w/everything (homemade chili, onions, mustard) and the chili was quite good. The meat was finely ground and had an out-of-the-ordinary chili taste in a good way! My wife had the egg salad sandwich and she like her's, too. The staff was very attentive and nice, as always. If you haven't gone... More

First. The place is really small. I guess this is reminiscent of days gone bye, BUT it's OK. We arrived at lunch on a really hot July 7th and it appeared a lot of other customers wanted refuge from the extreme heat, too. I had a veggie burger and it was OK. I'm guessing the patty wasn't homemade because it... More
