From hamburger steaks to salads, cheese steak to shrimp plates… you can literally eat there every day of the week and try something different each day. Started in Goldsboro, NC, founder Kenny Moore committed himself to a restaurant that had authentic hospitality and fresh food.

You can’t pop in without sampling some of their freshly made custard! Each week there is a different flavor of the week and while ALL of them are over the top fantastic, franchise owner Bill Hamilton says that Banana Pudding is one of the all time top sellers! If you’re a chocolate lover, you might consider trying “Candy Bar Galore,” which includes Heath Bar, Butterfinger, Snickers and Reese Cups! 

What makes Highway 55’s custard stand above anything else on the market? CREAM!!!! While traditional ice cream contains about six percent butterfat, this custard contains double the amount! They use only top notch ingredients, which enables the recipe to come out extremely smooth, rich and creamy! Talk about a perfect treat on a hot summer day! YUM!

 If you and your friends are up for a challenge, you might like to give the “Five Five Challenge” a whirl. It’s a 55 oz. burger with at least 4 trimmings on a bun, plus fries and a 24 oz drink!
