My family and I stopped for ice cream. The service was fast and friendly. The Hot Fudge Sundae I had was like " old time sundaes" plenty of ice cream and luscious thick hot fudge.

Enjoy lunch and ice cream on the fabulous porch! Roy and his family make Baabal's a special friendly place. It's just off 25 behind the Foam & Fabric store, in a quaint Craftsman bungalow. And upstairs they have vintage consignment. All good!

Baabal's is a hidden gem amongst the eating establishments in Fletcher. It's not so easy to find, but if you go past the St. Johns Plaza, which is home to dickies barbecue and the Fletcher bakery, You'll find it in an old house on the left. Have you ever had Hersheys ice cream? Then you know all you need to... More

We had lunch here & topped it off with ice cream. What a great find! Lunch was delicious & reasonably priced. It's our favorite new local spot to meet friends. They have a huge porch where we sat & ate.

Ok if you have not been to Baabals, It is a MUST!! Roy and his family are amazing. The variety of ice cream and taste is awesome! Join them for lunch for some of the best hot dogs you will find around and my personal favorite is the pimento cheese, add bacon with a side of brunswick stew!!

The restaurant is in a beautiful old house. The kids can swing on the front porch or play in the yard. Parents can sit in the rocking chairs while enjoying an ice-cream cone. The staff is very personable.

Great place for ice cream or a delicious lunch. The Natan's hotdogs are the best in the area. The menu for lunch offers many other choices besides hotdogs. The staff are friendly making you feel at home. Being in old house makes you feel you are at grandma's home.

This is a great place for ice cream and having lunch. The food is fresh and not prepared before ordering. The hot dogs are the best. It"s like visiting grandma"s house. You can sit on the porch and relax.

Relax and laid back atmosphere. Ice Cream was great and the hot fudge cake to die for. Great outdoor seating area and just a fun place to visit.
