Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

It's like stepping back in time into a huge candy store and ice cream bar.

Pros: 1) The staff is wonderful - They are friendly, help with selections, and talk to the kids while preparing candy or ice cream. 2) The old-time ambience (including staff uniforms), and a spacious layout. 3) wide variety of cchocolates, candy and ice cream

Cons (sort of): 1) other customers can be impolite in their quest for candy. If you can get there when it isn't busy, the experience is better. 2) if you don't have a sweet tooth, this may not be for you.

A step back in time, this place is wonderful! Love the ice cream! We always stock up on some chocolates to bring home. They have coffee, milkshakes, floats - these I have yet to try. Can't wait until my next visit!!!

When we got there, the ice cream guy was missing and the couple in front of us was waiting forever for ice cream. We were confused as to whether the ice cream was actually made there or not. But they were making taffy and had a huge selection of taffy to buy there. Neat place made to look like an old soda shop.

There is no doubt in my mind that every time I visit the Iland, La Kings is a MUST!
It feels like you walked out of a time machine when you walk into the establishment.
From the employees uniforms, to the classic taffy machine they have, La Kings is a Galveston treasure.

Enjoyed ice cream with the family then purchased some candy items for later. Both the ice cream and candy items were excellent. It was a fun stop with the kids although a bit expensive.
