Shirl's has a great selection of food, and (perhaps more importantly) ice cream! :-) We have never been disappointed in any of our choices. Our go-to for food is their grub sandwich, and of course, you have to have fries too. For dessert, there are many, many choices to choose from. Cones, malts, shakes, sundaes ... you get the picture.... More

Ordered the gyro dinner and was surprised how huge it was. Almost couldn't finish it...but I forced myself. Service was quick and friendly. I definitely will go back in the future.

As good as Michele's Custard in Madison WI, but the price is cheaper. It is very thick tasty ice cream. I just moved to the area and I am eating it way too much and getting fat, but it is so good.
