Most summer evenings you will find a line out the door and stretching into the parking lot. But do not worry the service is very fast. Everything is delicious from the sundaes and shakes to the home made ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cakes. The prices are terrific as well. People come from near and far to enjoy the... More

Once again, holy cow outdid itself. The most delicious large hot fudge Sunday. I didn't eat for almost 24 hours after that. The freshest, tastiest, most flavorful ice cream at 1960's prices. Worth driving out of your way. And also, across the street is Rusty's for lunch. Gotta try both.

Holy Cow serves the best ice cream on earth. Best variety, best prices, best service. Lines are out the door during the summer. Try the ice cream cakes and pies.

The ice cream at Holy Cow is like nothing you've ever had. It's fresh and creamy and the price is right. If you go on a summer evening, you'll see a line extending into the parking lot but don't be afraid - it goes rapidly. The staff is well-trained, efficient and fast. Check it out - you'll be hooked! You'll... More

The coffee creation ice cream is my favorite treat from here. So cheap, I swear the prices haven't changed in ages.

The name says it all! The prices are unbelievable in this day and age. The ice cream was deliciously decadent, creamy and smooth. Servings were generous, and despite the long line, the servers were courteous and moved us along quickly. Go!

We live in the neighborhood so we go often. Everything is fresh and good and very reasonable. They offer a wide variety of items. My dogs love the fat free yogurt. Even when there is a line it goes fast. It is nice to eat it there and chat with the large number of people who hang out there every... More

Not everywhere can you get a malt. Had a very delicious one and would go back. The ice cream was very good. It was vanilla and I love vanilla so I know when I've had a good one. Would recommend for a cold treat.

Very good ice cream. The namesake (if I remember correctly: vanilla ice cream with peanut butter and peanut butter cups) was delicious. Lots of outdoor seating. Only complaint: the menu is on several boards across the entire wall, confusing for the out-of-town visitor. I saw one board from the picnic tables -- while I really liked my cone, this would've...
