They have a nice variety of flavors and they're reasonably priced. I didn't try the food, but the ice cream was great.

Not only was it a cute little ice cream shop, but they serve some amazing ice cream too! There are so many to choose from but everyone of them is great! The staff is usually friendly but of course you'll get one or two who aren't.

The staff is very friendly, helpful and I am very, very picky customer! (Just ask them!). The one and only time I've had anyone that seemed close to being rude, I asked how long she's been in the working world. She said she was brand new, third day! I have worked for myself, restaurants, and customer service. I was happy... More

I go here all of the time. Everytime I come I order an iced chai tea latte. Everytime ! I order these all of the time from the ice cream shoppe, Starbucks and other coffee houses. I don't know her name as they don't wear name tags, however, I come here often and have never seen her before so she... More

Stopped after spending a day in a Tombstone. We went through the drive thru & was greeted by a friendly young lady and given quick service. We both ordered glaciers, one Reese's peanut butter and the other strawberry, coconut, cheesecake and both were delicious! They were better than a DQ blizzard any day! Recommend a stop here if driving through... More

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

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 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
