I remember going here as a child, and wanted my grandchildren to experience it too. It's the last Borden restaurant left in the world. They loved their first banana split with all the toppings! It was really reasonable for the quality and size. This was a highlight of their trip to Lafayette. (I marked "lunch" but actually went for dessert.)

The only thing that's changed is the personnel--well most of them anyway. Oh, and even though it's under new(ish) ownership, the only things that I can see that have changed are that it's even more kid-friendly. I usually enjoy a medium sundae with the chopped walnuts in a gooey syrup. I'm so glad that they still have it. And the... More

This place has been a staple near the USL campus in Lafayette for more than fifty years. At one time, Borden's had a chain of ice cream shoppes across the country. This is the LAST one! After going through a number of ownership changes over the years, it was purchased by the Lerille family (yes, *those* Lerilles of Red Lerille... More

I remember coming here as a little girl, I brought my children when they were little. The ice cream is still the best. When we are in town we stop in. I personally love the vanilla shakes. They keep is clean and simple. Sure there are a lot of kids but parents want their children to enjoy some of their... More

First this place can make any flavor soda, we were lucky enough to have Elssa wait on us, she had been there since the 60's. She makes a banana split that is just fantastic they use real strawberries in simple syrup. She makes the best chocolate malts with real malt. Great place to stop on a summer afternoon.

After eating at the Filling Station, we saw this place and decided to get an ice cream. It looked excellent. Parking was tight and we got one of the few spots left. We went in and it was jumping with children and parents. It was mayhem. A fellow at the counter expressed his dismay with the situation to us, but... More
