It's just a quaint little place and there is usually a line (which means it's good). I love that era - and we were both "born" the same year so it's as old as me. :) Really good icecream for sure. And it's in "Old...More

A Scottsdale Institution! You must stop by and have a cold summer treat! Hot fudge sundae, banana split, malted or ice cream cone? This is your place! The sandwiches are also great! Perfect place for young and old tall or short!

My family dined here on a Sunday afternoon. We had just flown in and checked in to our hotel. It was a perfect quick lunch. The burgers and Rueben were delicious. The coleslaw was especially good. We were so full that we split a shake...More
