Yum yum yum and generous portions! I got a cake cone with cookie dough and chocolate dip! The girl at the counter said the small was the size of a softball and she was right! Once I got my small cone the lady at a table next to us said "wow that's bigger than you are" because it was so... More

Ice cream selection is good; ice cream is delicious. However, certain times in the evening, the lines are very long and the line at the drive up window is long as well. Maybe Rodeo Whip could use better organization......the public loves it!

This is by far my favorite place to go for ice-cream. The flavor selection is amazing and the taste is always great. The only downside is how long it can take to get the ice-cream. They have not figured out how to streamline the serving process and when it gets busier it can take over a 1/2 hr to get... More

Fantastic soft serve ice cream. Best I've had since leaving Buffalo many years ago. You sure can't be in a hurry when you go, but the wait is well worthwhile. The portions are also generous. My wife and I got banana boats on our anniversary. Wow, spectacular, but bring a big appetite because they are huge.

Every time we have gone here, the whole place smells like bleach. YUCK! That's the last thing I want to smell when I eat ice cream! Cleaning the place is great, but they should really wait to wipe everything down with bleach after hours. The last time we went, we went through the drive through, and the ice cream tasted... More

Drove past this place a few times didn't think much of the old-timey decor but glad I saw all the positive reviews online before I left Deland so I had to stop in! I ordered a banana split, it was on the pricier side- came out to about $9 and some change but it was HUGE I swear it weighed... More

Rodeo Whip has the best ice cream I've ever eaten - hands down! The only reason I didn't give a 5 rating is the fact that they need more help - especially on weekends! Service is waay to slow.

It's hard to wreck good old fashioned ice cream. Butter pecan is to die for....ample amount for the price. Can be a wait sometimes. Nothing fancy. Will go back for more! Wish they would change things up a bit. Same old same old gets boring but is close compared to heading downtown. Parking can suck. It's pretty dark and dismal... More

The best ice cream we've ever had! The tiny little gem in Deland is home to the best peanut butter sundae ever. They have soft serve and hard as well as all kinds of specialties!

We have family that lives in Orange City, FL and we started going to Rodeo Whip several years ago. At first it was "what? Ice Cream? Whatever, we can get that anywhere!" But, after we went there and sampled the German Chocolate in a waffle cone--we were hooked! No trip down to visit our relatives is complete without a trip... More
