Sno-Cap Drive-in Still Doing What Works After 57 Years



For nearly 60 years, the phrase, “Meet me at the ‘Cap,” has sent Augustans to a 60s-era diner right across the bridge into North Augusta.

Sno-Cap Drive-in is located as 618 West Ave. in North Augusta and features a classic menu of burgers, hot dogs, desserts and their famous Smiley Fries.

  1. Our local Miata group (you see some in that picture) meets there monthly. The food is great (best fries anywhere), the service is personable and excellent; it’s the perfect setting for us to gather, enjoy each others company and talk cars. We have members from all over the CSRA and the Sno-Cap is a good mid-point for all. Looking forward to the ‘outside heaters’ and higher quality ice-cream.
