We create our own creamy shakes, ice cream sundaes and more just the way they were made when your mom and dad were kids. As the home of the original waffle cone, we believe in creating great traditions and keeping them going. You’ll love our handmade waffle cones, rolled right in front of your eyes on the original four iron waffle machine, built in 1904. When the weather is nice, you can find Albert Doumar and the waffle machine parked right outside of the diner, so your family can watch the magic happen from the car.
Doumar’s is proud to create its own creamy desserts, ice cream cones, North Carolina-style barbecue, limeades, and hamburgers – all by hand and from scratch! Come inside on your next visit to see our juicy, delicious barbecue in the making and be sure to order one of our famous limeades or orange freezes. Whether you’re dining in, getting food to go, or enjoying our authentic curb service, Doumar’s has plenty to satisfy your sweet or savory cravings.
