Awesome soft serve Ice cream

We stopped here after a day of hiking to have a soft serve ice cream cone. It was definitely worth the wait in line at this very busy drive in.. Delicious just like my friend said it would be. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

My kids actually complained that they give too much ice cream, haha! The value is great, the lines can be long, the place could be a little cleaner. While we were waiting on our ice cream I watched all of the employees slide constantly on the floor, I felt bad for them.

My grandmother and I drive all the way from Vancouver, WA just to have their ice-cream. It is so creamy and yummy and HUGE. A small can barely be eaten alone. They always make everything with some love. My mom went here as a teen and I plan to tell my kids about it when I have them. It is... More

We just visited this dive in hopes of some refreshing ice cream on a hot summer day. What we got was a long wait for the wrong order and ice cream that was "blah" at best. When we got there, there were only 2 people in line, but a dozen people standing around with receipts in their hands. That should... More

Okay, the line was long and moved slowly. It was a beautiful day and everyone was out and about. We stopped for ice cream after hiking the Multnomah Falls overlook trail. We knew about the East Wind from reading Wild. I am a PCT hiker from years back. While in line we talked to a couple of hikers who had... More

I think they git every part of our order wrong, and then it was a 30 minute wait for french fries that were barely cooked! Go anywhere else.

I have never waited so long for an ordinary cheese burger EVER. We waited in line forever then when our turn came we thought yeah. Only to discover that they give you your giant sundae first and send you around the corner to wait for your food. So we ate the probably 40 once size soft ice cream pile that... More

Defiantly eat the ice cream but expect to wait in a huge line sometimes an hour on summer weekends! The food can be ok depends on which cook is there at the time you go. Its a burger joint!

If you're going to get an ice cream cone there's no other place on 84 between Portland and Pendleton to get one the challenge is eating it before it melts this is a great place and I must stop it's a great place and a must stop if you're traveling through the gorge
