So sad--very disappointing ice cream and very expensive. Chocolate, for example, was very light chocolate. Mint chocolate chip had very little mint flavor. This town needs a Braum's to know what good ice cream at a good price really is!

Some of the best ice cream I have ever had. I like that they offer to sample the flavor a before you commit to one. Also the free waffle cone is a nice touch. We will be retuning to try some more flavors.

The ice cream was really good..... Especially the turtle tracks!! We thought it was a good value, too. We went there after lunch and decided to go back after dinner.
