Old looking, in that cool iconic way. Every old metal sign imaginable. Ordered the combo club sandwich with fries and coffee. Order arrived in less than ten minutes. Everything fresh, the club was exactly what I would have received when ordering one at any given American restaurant 20 or thirty years ago. Yay!! Nothing special, just exactly what it should...

We stopped for dessert only. I got the penguin and my wife had the chocolate cake with hot fudge . Both were a whole lot more than we could eat at very inexpensive prices. With dessert and drinks, our bill was less than $12. The waitress was very friendly, made sure we were happy with everything and kept our glasses... More

Definitely an old school "ice cream parlor" vibe, the staff seemed to push us out the door a little - but to their credit, they were super friendly to us for a couple that showed up 15 minutes before closing! The ice cream was good and they had a huge menu with lots of choices.

This is a very popular lunch destination with a wide variety of menu choices. The deserts are delicious. My favorite menu item is one of their club sandwiches

Today's special was Frito pie: chili topped with cheese and onions on a bed of Fritos. Delicious. And a chocolate malt that could not be beat . Nice service , quick in and out. Fun things to look at as decorations.

Stopped by on our way back from Santa Fe to Dallas...absolutely delicious if your looking for a "real" diner style, homemade food, with good service and delectable burgers. Service was quick. Food was good and hot. Burgers hit the spot! Wish I saved room for ice cream sundae I coveted my whole meal. Can't wait to drive back and have... More

We go usually two Sundays a month. The Rueben sandwiches are great. I usually get a Bacon cheeseburger. I've never been disappointed. The furniture is dated but that's the fun of going there. The wait staff is always enthusiastic. The milkshakes are made in the tradition of an old malt shop.

Malcolms has been in Amarillo for many years. I went early on just for the Ice Cream. But in later years I went for their great Grilled Cheese and also Tuna fish sandwiches. Great!

I fell in love with this place ever since my dad first introduced me to it. They have awesome wall decor that you have to check out for yourself. For food, my favorite is the bacon cheeseburger and the chocolate shake. It's some of the best around!
