P.S. Anybody had anything decent to eat there from the fryer? If so, I might give it a try at lunchtime some day.

BTW, the cones at the Multnomah Falls snack bar are suprisingly good (for a from-a-mix at a snack bar, ya know).
Damn, I miss Carvel. ;o)

It's always great and you can walk up or drive up.

The father of one of my best friends left Wall Street to open a Carvel in our town around 1977 or so. Mass quantities of vanilla crunch were consumed. Things were great until his pops started hittin' the sauce real hard in the back room and all the fun kinda drained out of it. Sad story.
Cookie Puss and Fudgie The Whale were cool, but the whole frozen soft ice cream experience was/is kinda wack (see Costco). I'd usually go for a Mud Pie or a Grasshopper Pie from B-R instead. Or those cupcake things with the frozen icing faces on them.
Everyone has their best soft-serve candidates back there, but the most reliable for us was the Red Rooster Drive-in in Brewster NY. Mainly because my Dad loved it and we'd invariably been cooped up in the station wagon for a few hours on yet another road trip in 90-plus-degree heat.

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life
and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.
It is of great importance to the morale.

bacon cheese burger was good (like home made) 4 pieces of good quality bacon on it, too.... nice change from a "commercial fast food burger".
shakes are all good.
Saw people having the Lg soft ice cream cone .. it must be about 10" tall !!
... then down to the park under the tressel and to the end where the indians are .. it was june and the spring chinook were on. bought a nice chrome bright 15 pounder for home.

We do family day trips to the little park at Cascade Locks and always get lunch there. Nothing to be afraid of, the food is greasy and great.

As for soft serve madness, check out King Kone at 1515 Salem Ave Se. in Albany. It's the only place I've ever seen a double-wide cake cone for holding two spirals (3"+ normally) of ice cream on them.
