Exploring The Kosher Restaurants of Las Vegas III: Huntridge Soda Fountain
The quirkiest kosher restaurant in Las Vegas would definitely have to be Huntridge Soda Fountain. On our recent trip to Las Vegas, we visited it and greatly enjoyed it. Having been open since 1 August 2012 (as a kosher restaurant), Huntridge Soda Fountain is under the kosher supervision of Rabbi Yaakov Wasser.
The first time we visited the Huntridge Soda Fountain, we drove around and drove around, looking for Huntridge Soda Fountain. Part of the issue was that it is located in a somewhat sketchy-looking neighborhood and part of it is that the primary signage outside of it says “Huntridge Pharmacy” and one does not expect to look for a kosher restaurant inside of a pharmacy/drug store. So, if you’re looking for it, look for “Huntridge Pharmacy”.
Huntridge Soda Fountain has decent food at good prices despite being in a seedy neighborhood. And it’s worth checking out.
I started out with the onion rings, which are good and I recommend getting ranch dressing in which to dip them. Not only are they plentiful, but they have a nice consistency to them.
I also ordered the quesadilla, which comes with salsa and sour cream, both separately on the side. I greatly enjoyed the salsa with my quesadilla.
My wife got French fries, which she said were fine. My kids got chocolate chip pancakes, of which I had one and I enjoyed it.
Although we were too full to continue consuming, on previous visits, we have ordered a milkshake, which is enjoyably thick and tasty.
The service at Huntridge Soda Fountain is always very personable and you can find out a lot about the uniqueness of the place through the staff there. Also, the prices are really good – you can expect to spend a lot less here than at other kosher restaurants in Las Vegas.
One criticism that my wife says is that there’s nothing served there is something that you couldn’t make at home and none of it is homemade or regular restaurant-quality food. Pancakes were from a box mix, french fries and onion rings both come frozen out of a bag, etc. Nevertheless, if one is visiting on vacation and does not have access to a kitchen, this is a great place to visit.
It is also worth noting that when we visited, they had just recently updated their menus and had also recently installed a new hands-washing sink near the service counter, so the ownership is still working on improving the restaurant which has been kosher for nearly two years now.
