I grew up near here, and while I moved away decades ago, I still love going here when I visit family in the summer. We still call it the Tastee-Freeze! Quaint and old fashioned, the prices are reasonable, and the sundaes are fabulous!

Step into the past at this very welcoming road side ice cream stand. Our favorite twists are the strawberry/berry and the chocolate/vanilla. A great destination on a hot summer evening.

Cute old-school roadside ice cream stand. Nice and interesting grounds you can wander around on. Picnic tables, etc to sit down with your yummy ice cream. We only had ice cream so I can't speak to the other food offered. Nice to support a small-town...More

We have stopped here for a number of years to grab a cone after the car cruises. Nice little typical ice cream stand with good prices. If you're into pumpkin...try the pumpkin soft serve! Phenomenal!

What a cute find! Had dinner at the diner next door, took our time choosing from the extensive ice cream flavor list, and enjoyed the little group of attractions surrounding the buildings. Unassuming but worth stopping by!

Took the little guy there to get a cone, can't complain, service was good and it's as clean as it can be outside, as I can't tell the inside as I wasn't in there. I just th I,k it's a tad over priced.

We were on the way home and passed this handful of structures...an iconic soft serve, an old time filling station, a boat, and a trailer advertising the Route 96 Fix: a cheeseburger with bacon, peanut butter and a fried egg. Needless to say we turned...More
