Old-Fashioned Milk Shake

I've been to two Jerry's Famous Deli, and their milkshakes are thin, and I never got the metal cup. I like Milkshakes with thick, thick ice cream (maybe with malt) and the metal cup of the rest of it in, especially when there is a lot in there.

I had one at Panns, and it was thin.

I want an old fashioned milkshake, Like I remember. Where can I find it?

I live in Van Nuys, but I can drive.

  1. Bob's Big Boy in Burbank for thick, thick, thick shakes.

    1. I haven't been in ages, but used to love the milkshakes at Ruby's Diner which always came with the metal cup on the side with the extra so that it was practically two shakes worth. Locations all around.

          The Carney's on Sunset Blvd. does not have shakes but I'm not sure about the Studio City one.

        2. Best shake that I have ever had - UBE SHAKE (yelling) at Oinkster in Eagle Rock! Made with Fosselman's Ube Ice Cream and Fosselman's is worth a try for other flavors too!!!

            What is UBE? Fosselman's looks good!

            1. re: Depage

              Ube is a purple yam, popular in the Philippines. No, it's not a typical American milkshake flavor but it is so good! Just try it!

            2. re: sel

              My favorite at Fosselman's is one scoop espresso, for the kick, and two scoops cookies and cream, for the crunch. No cup on side, but we live in a free country, so you can always order two shakes!

              See for a list of their many appealing flavors.

            3. How about the pecan milk shake, at Lucky Devil's?

                Lucky Devils' are pretty good, and I'm guessing Scoops' may be pretty good too, but w/o a metal cup, but what really frosts me (no pun intended) whenever I go to the mid-west is that in Chicago, (or Columbus) you can go into any Potbelly Sandwich (btw, they also make a sub sammich which makes Subway just an embarrassment to the food service industry) and get a reasonable-sized (smallish) made-with-real-ice-cream shake for, IIRC, $2.50!

                1. re: cjla

                  Sorry, I hate pecans! Do they have others?

                  1. re: Depage

                    Yes they have other milkshake flavors but personally I opt for one of their excellent draft beers!
