Q&A with Bill Sullivan, Owner
What made you want to work with food? When did you first develop that passion?
We love providing our customers with generous portions of hand-crafted ice cream.
Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem—not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?
There are several. Our hot Virginia ham would probably be the most common.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
We are a '50s-era-style diner. We have been making our own top quality ice cream since 1948. We also offer diner-style food like hamburgers and french fries. We have a signature hot Virginia ham sandwich that has been a customer favorite since 1948. We also offer a rib eye steak sandwich, fish tail sandwich, and homemade soups.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We also roast fresh peanuts and cashews daily, and we sell delicious Ben Heggy's chocolates.
