Very friendly staff with a smile. The poor girl was dealing with an absolute idiot in front of us, and she just smiled through it all and kept apologizing to us after that customer left, even though it was not her fault. Really enjoyed our experience. Please have cash ready. If unsure, please see the sign that says "CASH ONLY"... More

We stopped in here for dessert and a fresh-squeezed lemonade, which was perfect. It is a quaint little country store type atmosphere. Very friendly folks and they only take cash but they have an ATM in the corner so that is no trouble at all. The ice cream was very good and the place is really clean. There were very... More

I'm not sure how you screw up a malt but they did. It was so watery and thin you could drink it like a glass of tea…..should be THICK!

When traveling with grand kids, ice cream is a must. Great customer service and reasonable prices. Very generous scoops. The kids were happy and they had my fav Blue Bell flavor. The weather turned bad when we came in so we ended up sitting inside for awhile while a major thunderstorm passed by. The staff were fine with our six... More

My husband and I were so happy to see this ice cream shop open after 10pm. They serve a variety of Blue Bell ice cream, shakes, and other frozen goodies. The servings were nice and large. Would go back.

We stopped here following a Mexican dinner and got ice cream and lemonade. The ice cream was good..but that lemonade is the best! Fresh squeezed! Nice little gift shop attached and adequate seating to eat there!

It seems nobody in this town makes their own ice cream. We visited this place twice and found the staff very friendly. The first visit, our dog was given a scoop of ice cream on the house. The ice cream was "okay"; nothing to get excited about. Same stuff you buy at your local grocer.

We ate twice here during our stay. They serve Hiland brand ice cream but have some homemade pies and stuff. I had an apple dumpling that was quite good. Right off the main drag and easy to find.

Stopped in for some ice cream before heading home. Excellent ice cream, and a great, pleasant, and relaxing atmosphere.
