“Nathan's Dairy Bar officially made my top 3 ice cream places list!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 via mobile

I'm torn, because I used to be such a hardcore fan of Kline's in Manassas, especially the Boston Shake. I thought I would give this place a try and its now my new favorite ice cream joint in all of Northern VA! While Klines is still very good, I would give a slight edge to Nathan's, as I find their icecream, well, creamier. They have some very cool flavors and the portions are HUGE, especially for the price. Give both places a try, and decide for yourself. A MUST stop place if you are anywhere near Manassas.

“Holy cow, this place is THE best”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

I stopped by here after seeing a crazy long line on a Friday evening and now I know why so many people were waiting to get ice cream. I've been to other places like this but none offer such high quality food at Nathan's extremely reasonable rates. From kids cups to large cones with a wide variety of flavors (some standard, others change daily), Nathan's is a definitely treat for the palate.

“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Nathan's is, hands down, the best soft serve anywhere. Their peanut butter shake is like sipping Jiff straight from the jar. Just be warned most of the time there is a line.

“where the locals go for Ice cream”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

Great ice cream destination for any day. They are closed for the winter months. Smooth ice cream in a number flavors and variations. All fresh made with plenty of toppings. They even have treats for dogs.
