Too Sweet

We stopped for dessert on June 1, and we were amazed at the number of flavors. My date had a butter pecan cone and said that it was excellent. I had a cherry malt that was also excellent. Stop here for some very good ice cream

Stopped here for ice cream while traveling though the area as part of my business with 2 associates. The staff was nice and friendly and did a good job of filling our order. We ordered our ice cream and moved outside as there is no inside seating area. There is a covered picnic table in the parking lot where we... More

Stopped in with the family on a short road trip in southeastern Arizona. We were at first a bit daunted by the 50 flavors of soft serve, but when my son realized he could have egg nog soft serve (in March!) he was set. Wife had a "glacier", and I had three scoops of Blue Bell. All very good, and... More

We have used this ice cream place 4 times and never been disappointed. We do only get a medium or large chocolate dipped ice cream cones but they are always GREAT. Highly recommend this as an after dinner dessert stop. $ 2.50 for medium dipped cone and well worth it.

I came to this place when stopping in Benson for gas and was amazed that they had so many flavors! Muchbetter than DQ! The girl who was behind the counter wasn't at all bothered by how many questions I had to ask (as they have a huge menu and most of it sounds delicious). I decided on the Prickly Pear... More

Soft serve ice cream that melts immediately or blue belle hard scoop. Not worth the calories. Filthy outdoor seating.
