Homemade, delicious oce cream in many flavors. Price is cheap and cones are huge. On a beautiful weekend day expect a line but it's worth it.

If you love ice cream this is the place to go, especially for the money. You can't beat their prices and their ice cream is very good.

The ice cream is made on the property and can also be bought by the quart. Not a lot of help at times when they have food and ice cream orders but always friendly and welcoming.

A wide selection of ice cream at a fantastic price! This is a favorite among locals. My personal favorite flavor served here is yellow cake.

Many unusual flavors, Will let you taste before buying.... More

You will not be dissatisfied with the portions. The ice cream is very good in a waffle cone. On a hot evening the line can be long because it is a Knox County favorite.

A "single dip" is about 3-4 scoops and it costs less than two bucks. There are many flavors to choose from, try the apple cinnamon! If you're hungry for food, the usual fast food options are available, as well as fried bologna or a fish tail sandwich. Prepare to wait a bit if you arrive on a hot summer evening;... More

Ice cream portions are enormous - 3 huge scoops for just $2.75 in a waffle cone. Ice cream was pretty good too, not exactly the low quality type.
