“Great Ice Cream, Great People”
Review of Frosty Caboose

Frosty Caboose
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Chamblee
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 March 2013

This is a small, family owned and operated ice cream stand right next to the Norfolk & Southern Railway tracks in Historic Chamblee, GA. The business is inside a specially-modified real caboose. This is a stand-up place - literally; that is, there is no seating. You belly-up to the order window get your desert, and eat it outside. There are several benches and tables nearby, so seating isn't a problem. They have many flavors, sundaes, etc., all made with locally-made, high-fat content Greenwood ice cream. They also have low fat, Italian ices, sorbets, to suit any taste. Their specialty is the Caboose Wheels, which I recommend highly. If you've just finished a meal at nearby Oga's, you might as well top it off with a Chocolate Fetish sundae or Caboose Wheels at the Frosty Caboose. You’ll be glad you did.

It's so hard not to stop in for a scoop or two after a relaxing lunch at Vintage Pizza across the street. Fun place to go, with so many choices.

Whether you live in the are or in nearby Brookhaven, Dunwoody or Sandy Springs, you should check out the Frosty Caboose. Built inside of an old Caboose, the ice cream shop serves Chamblee made Greenwood Ice Cream. You can't beat the local connection. Rumor has it the owners actually had the caboose shipped in from somwhere out west. Any way you look at it the concept is cool. The people at the window are nice, the location is easy to get to and the ice cream is great! On just about any evening this summer we've seen a number of folks getting ice cream and hanging around because it's just cool to see the caboose up close and personal. And, not just because we are in Georgia, we recommend the Peach Ice Cream!
