Course of Meals:
Ice Cream Sundae. It comes in a plastic cup. I had vanilla ice cream, with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry. The ice cream was okay and the hot fudge was not good at all. The fudge tasted like maple syrup. If it were early in the morning, I may have a different sentiment, but not late in the afternoon. To be frank, I feel like I could taste each ingredient in the ice cream and hot fudge. Yuck. The best part of the sundae were the nuts.
50's themed (black/white checkered flooring and 50's music playing).
My server was very nice and friendly. She was very prompt and took care of me even though it was just ice cream.
*A little pricey for the sundae
*Stools were creaky and shaky
What's Special about Carolina Soda Shoppe:
*Sundae Nuts were good (please no jokes)
*Old Diner atmosphere
Closing Everything Out:
My total bill, including tip was $6.95. I found this slightly upsetting. While the portion size was good, the sundae was mediocre at best. I have heard their milkshakes, burgers, and such are better, so I will go back to check them out.
