Everyone in town heads to Ball's after school, the big game or Sunday night. Beautiful gardens and seating area. Great value on soft ice cream and the chili dogs are super!

Not only is this by far the best soft serve in the area, the seating area is a beautiful garden with cute little stepping stone paths, and a childrens play area. They do not take debit/credit cards, but the sundaes and treats are well worth the trip. Locally owned and run by the same family for years! The best Chilli... More

I know this is an ice cream shop but I haven't had any ice cream there is years. I love the Chili Dogs. Yes, they are messing and sometimes need to be eaten with a fork but soooo worth it.

I have come to Ball's since I was a little kid, and now I bring my grandchildren there! It has always been great. We live farther south than Alto, and drive to Lowell every time for ice cream even though there are several other places closer. Keep up the good work!

Gardens are pretty but the structures are a bit rundown. Also the lines are starting to get long. Great price. My favorite is sherbet dipped in chocolate.

We heard about Balls and heard they had chili dogs so we made a special trip on a sunny day to give them a try. Yuck! They were big fat dogs and cold dry buns. We ended up throwing them out the window of the car on the way home hoping nature would enjoy them better than we did. Never... More
