The icecream is always good there. It tastes like homemade. We always gave the chocolate sundae and banana split.

Here is where you want for the familiar flavor of drive ins and soda fountains. We all love the soft serve ice-cream. They have vanilla& CHOCOLATE swirl.They have a very extensive menu,something for everyone. It wouldn't be Newport without Debbie's

I highly recommend the chuck wagon burger, large fries and banana milk shake! I'm a regular and the food is consistently very good...plus you will see them cutting up a fresh banana for the shake through the window. Good people run this place.

I was having an antisocial day did not want to go in to a sit down restaurant so me and my husband came here. I got a cheese burger and fries it was quick and delicious. Nothing fancy but is nostalgic of the places that is hard to find anymore and old style drive up restaurant.

Wonderful milkshakes and banana splits....they are the best in town.... the walnut milkshake is to die for. Great fries and the hamburger steak dinner is a delight....orders are cooked/made to order. This is a car hop restaurant which is a fun experience. A friend from out of town always request a stop by Debbie's during her visit.
