We love this place! The owner is friendly and not cheap, he gives good portions. His staff doesn't do the best job but when he works my ice cream is awesome!!

Great and wide selection of ice cream and novelties. The owner supports a lot of community efforts so I like to support his business. Makes a great chocolate malt or black and white. Something for everyone in the family
