Doumar's Cones & Barbecue Restaurant Review

: Open since 1934, this is the country's oldest drive-in and a national landmark. Nostalgia buffs will be drawn to the orange awning outside and orange vinyl stools and booths inside, not to mention the carhops, some of whom have been here for more than 40 years. Like the regular customers, undoubtedly they are loyal to the N.C.-style pork barbecue, fried ham sandwiches and limeade with fresh fruit. Be sure to top off your meal with one of the ice cream cones. Some credit founder Abe Doumar with creating the first ice cream cone in 1904. Regardless of parentage, the cone machine he used over a century ago at Coney Island is on display and there’s no waffling when it comes to his namesake restaurant: it’s still going strong. Open until 12:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
