Handel's has been consistently great for as long as I can remember. Their variety is excellent and the ice cream definitely has the homemade taste and creamy texture. If you get a flavor with nuts, it is loaded and they make it so frequently that...More

Since started by Mrs. Handel over 50 years ago this place is tops. Chocolate Pecan is the best along with the 30 plus flavor that change. This is what custard is all about and get the early in the summer to avoid the lines

Oh my!! Handels makes their fantastic ice cream fresh daily. Chocolate pecan is the most popular, but they have about 30 other types to choose from. Their menu also includes sundaes, milkshakes, and much more.

Handel's has the best ice cream that I've ever had. Made on the premises, it is always fresh and tasty. They serve a tremendous peppermint stick ice cream, but unfortunately only in December. Open year round!
