Excellent service and delicious ice cream. Short waiting line when we first arrived that soon extended outside the door while we ate our ice cream. It is that popular . . . with good reason. Worth the wait.

Best ice cream and great value! Definitely worth going to. In the pic below is “1 scoop” on their homemade waffles cone which was so yummy. I recommend everyone try the cones!

This place was PACKED every time we drove by, so we figured it was probably a pretty good stop. Parking is tight, but there is extra parking behind the building. They had a basket of menus out front. Nice seating outside. Fairly clean inside the building too, at the tables indoors, though I did not see anyone who worked there cleaning them. It appeared most people were just wiping their messes behind themselves and showing courtesy and manners. The lines are long, but they tend to move along. It seemed to be run by mostly teens, and they were taking turns getting orders from small groups in the line. We saw one kid behind the counter appear to be a little put out when someone got out of their "group" and had their order filled, and another kid completed the orders for the rest in their party. I guess they get paid on a quota filled? They were efficient and the ice cream was fresh and good. Lots of flavors to choose from. It is expensive, however. We saw lots of people ordering large sundaes to split in their families. We also saw extremely huge waffle cones with what looked like a swirled soft serve piled at least 6 inches high. They have an assortment of toppings at the end of the counter toward the register. The register was a confusing area teeming with people and it looked like the kids were having a hard time managing it, keeping up with the groups and who was paying with which group. The system was unclear. They were taking payments out of the order of the line, as people had their orders filled. Some kids were quicker than others scooping ice cream, so those patrons lucky enough to have a fast server were "skipping" in line to pay. It's a good place, busy and noisy, and certainly not a relaxing atmosphere. Our only issue was it was evident the kids were, though trying their best, struggling to get a system to work and to serve everyone. It looked high stress.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments. It usually flows fairly smoothly. We do have an unusual amount of new, first job young people this year so their first few busy nights can be disconcerting for them. Please give us another try if you come back.

Perfect end to a hot summer day. Pineapple upside down ice cream and butter pecan combo was the perfect mix.
