Ignore the crowd, suffer through the line...it’s worth it! Hoffman’s has reasonable prices, huge servings, unbelievable flavors. We go once a week in the summer and all winter long! Just go! And Hoffmans...you need a “Locals Only” line!

Worth the wait! Go here and get creative with the sauces. A small is plenty but if you're feeling crazy, go for the banana split. I've been going here for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. Have fun!More
