The iconic Snookies Malt Shop celebrated¬†30 years this April – a popular spot for those in the Drake and Roosevelt neighborhoods.¬†But it wasn’t always a popular destination – when they first opened in 1986, customers came slowly, but business gradually picked up, and now Snookies is a Beaverdale staple.

The malt shop offers indoor and outdoor seating, and serves up malts, shakes, ice cream cones, and slushies in a variety of flavors. Be sure to bring cash – as they won’t accept your debit or credit cards.

Fun fact: Bring your dog with you for what they call a puppy cone – how cute!
