We often come for dessert when we are in town. The portions are generous and reasonably priced. They have both indoor and outdoor seating.

Zesto has been around a long time. Old fashioned restaurant and ice cream shop. Delicious food, and hometown feel.

Zesto has all the fast food (hot dogs, hamburgers, shakes, etc.) that you'd find anywhere, but what makes it a local legend is the ice cream cones. They often have specials for bbq and for chili dogs, and the food is of good quality even...More
