My family and I went here for desserts because the born-and-bred locals like it so much. The website touts sherbet, but it tasted like average soft serve ice cream. My malt wasn't very "malt-y;" I should've just ordered a milkshake. My oldest son and husband ordered raspberry flavoring for their sundae and shake. I'm not sure there was any real... More

I've been going here as long as I remember. Excellant burgers and fries also pork tenderloins. Their sherbert of the day is always good as well. I will continue to stop in every time I'm in Council Bluffs.

We ate here at about 10pm on a Friday night recently & I don't know if it was because I was so hungry but the food here tasted great. The burgers are good, not the greatest, but the fries and onion rings were fantastic. The atmosphere is maybe what I enjoyed the most and it's pretty cheap to eat here.... More

Great ice cream, friendly help. We will try a famous hamburger on our next visit. It is in a historic, funny area of CB.

Good place to get a burger and fries. The portions are large...two can share an order of fries or onion rings. Pork tenderloin sandwich is good. The main thing Christy Creme is known for is their soft serve sherbert. They have 8 flavors that rotate. Check the website for "The Sherbert Calender". They always have vanilla and chocalate ice cream... More
