I have been taking my kids here for years. You can grab your food and drive right down the street the McNeely park for a picnic. Good food for a cheap price.

This is a great place to eat and get quick desserts. The only inconvenience is it's cash only. The building is a barrel, very fun for kids to see.

Nothing more than a streetside ice cream stand. Lots of options with small food selection (like burgers)... Well worth the stop for a cheap treat, and usually fairly busy.
