I was so disgusted with this visit with my son. We have been here many times and loved it but new management. I watched my food made without gloves and touched by the maker as she forgot cheese. I did not eat. Ice cream was touched with bare hands to keep on cone with the employee thinking I didn't notice.... More

Went in for Ice Cream. The 3 scoop cup was enormous. They called it a medium, what a joke. It was more like gigantic. Great value and fun staff. A must stop for ice cream and their hot dog special also
