One of the best places to grab a bite when you either attend Wm & Mary or you are just visiting. This place has not disappointed me ever since I first discovered it in 2006. Retro's has become my oldest daughter's favorite place to eat...More

Huge menu to suit the needs of a family and very family oriented. If you want an inexpensive meal or even dessert this place is worth your time. Very good.

Burgers, fries, hotdogs, fried pickles, and milkshakes are all wonderful! Very retro style. Gets very busy, especially in summer, but is worth the long lines for the good tasting, fair priced food!

Fast – Delicious – Affordable. Signature items include french fries cut fresh daily, and real dairy custard, frozen on site daily. Said to have the best hot dogs in town, one can load up with a choice of fourteen toppings which, in addition to the old standards, include blue cheese cole slaw and sweet potato mustard! With cheeseburgers, BBQ, our grilled chicken sandwich (think State Fair) and fresh salads, there is something here to please everyone in your group!
