Ok Chowhounders... when the sun is shining like it is today, I want to get a milkshake. Who has the best one? My preference is Chocolate made out of Choc. ice cream (not vanilla with chocolate syrup). What are your favorites and where?
Used to be, I'd think first of Ninth St in Durham to McDonald's drugstore and soda fountain. They finally closed up shop, though it looks like someone is reopening a renovated version of the same in that spot.
And Raleigh's best indie ice cream shop had been Cream and Bean. But they're gone now too.
I'm sure one of the traditional diner type joints (Finch's, Joe's, etc.) could fix you up, but not having ordered one in a while I don't have a recommendation for you based on that.
Poole's might offer one. If they do, it'd be great.
Based on old, but first-hand experience, you might want to head over to the Person Street Pharmacy. They've got a nice soda fountain operation there.

Great question. My vote based on limited research goes to Pharaoh's in North Hills (although I assume one downtown may have as well).
I like the taste of the chargrill and cook-out ones ok but rule them out because they come out of a machine. I tried the Burger Hut over on Morgan recently and am sad to say that both the shake and burger were disappointing although it was made with real ice cream and milk.
