“We Tried A Little of EVERYTHING!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Buzzed through the drive-thru & had quite an assortment to try in the car! Turtle Sundae - AWESOME! Butter Pecan in a Waffle Cone - Super creamy! Soft Serve Chocolate in a cup - Perfect! All for under $10.00! It's worth the trip!

Reviewed 14 March 2013

Lots of flavors to choose from. Good ice cream and lots of toppings too. Serving size was ample and shakes were very good.

“Not the same as when Carl had it”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

The turtle bars have thin watery ice cream now, not the rich ice cream that Carl used when he owned it.

“Great Dessert”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We went with the family. They have a very large menu, but we went just for ice cream. They have hard and soft serve ice cream, All 3 of us hard the hard ice cream and it was great. Very value priced as well. Highly recommended.
