Doumar’s is a throwback in time. Probably hasn’t changed a bit since the last time you were there in the fifties!!! Counter seats, cheap booths, rocky tables and SOLID FOOD. Nothing fancy and that’s an understatement! Banana splits, milk shakes, BBQ. If you don’t want...More

This place was picked by some family members because they frequented it over the years. Specializes in BBQ sandwiches and ice cream. Place is cheap but service was rude. The guy could have been more helpful on questions and less rude. I had a double...More

I was in the mood for a snack and was told Doumar’s was the place to go. My friend was right because I got a real nice grilled cheese with bacon, fries and a milkshake at a great price.
