Had a quick family dinner. There is frequently a line, so be prepared to wait. They are open seasonally and have a limited eat-in area with a larger outdoor eating area. Most of the outdoor tables are under cover. The food was adequate but nothing exception. The real reason to go is for dessert...the ice cream is very good and... More

kristy's is soooooo much better than DQ in both value and taste- you need to try the PB&J soft serve, but the vanilla is jus plain wonderful - now that you've eaten dessert first make sure you try the burgers, fries, BBQ etc!!!!

I live within minutes of this place and love coming here in the summer. Their ice cream is delicious- homemade, thick, creamy, and plenty of delicious flavors to try. The only problem is they seem to close too early on the weekends- especially Sundays (not sure what time but around 6 pm).

This is a great little place to stop for a bite or get some ice cream, sundaes or floats. The food is great; pork BBQ is the best. They get frequent baseball teams visiting after games in summer, so be prepared to wait in line. It goes very quickly though, and is well worth the wait!

This place has great ice cream and really huge burgers that are big enough to share. Conveniently located along the street with a nice pavilion next to the shop with picnic tables. There is always a long line but it moves quickly. You're going to love it here.

The ice cream is good and the outside seating is great. If there is a line, expect to wait a little while. Make sure you are clear with your order.

Kristy's is a must go to road-side joint for super-friendly service and generous portion-sized ice cream! Highly recommended! There is often a line out the door for the counter-service, but the line moves swiftly. Indoor/outside seating available.

The burgers are good. Much better than you would expect from such a small place. Try the Boxcar Burger. The ice cream sundaes are the best around. If you are going somewhere else for ice cream - stop, and head to Kristy's!

Very good mom and pop ice cream stop. Big servings. Better value than DQ and has a nice place outside to sit and eat. The largest size of banana split is massive, to the point of me taking two days to eat it. I ate half and had to freeze the rest.
