Twisted Ice Cream

Don't forget to stop here while you are in town. Best burgers around and the twisted chocolate/ vanilla ice cream cone is too cool.

This place is a classic, so keep your expectations in check. Burgers were great. Fries were huge, enough for two. Soft serve in giant portions. Priced right. Food cooked to order, so service can be a little slow. Sure, needs a little updating, but so much more character than fast food chains. A nostalgic stop in Cascade Locks.

My mom wanted to cross the Bridge of the Gods into Washington State, so we ended up in Cascade Locks. We needed change for the toll to get over the bridge, so we decided to stop somewhere to get coffee. While waiting in the considerable line, coffee turned into swirl ice cream, cheese sticks, and fries. The swirl ice cream... More

hamburgers are awesome! They have so many burgers to choose from it makes it hard to choose, get there early or you will have a long long line to wait in and I don't think the line is worth it.

We had been doing the scenic drive along the gorge and needed lunch. At the suggestion from a local, we stopped here. It is very tiny, but the food is good. We loved the salmon burgers, which were actual slabs of fish- not ground. The fries and ice cream are as good as they get if you don't mind doing... More

I was SO excited to go here for some ice cream after a big hike in the gorge . Long line, but worth the wait, or so I thought. I'm a very healthy, active person who RARELY gets sick. About five hours after I had my (awesome) ice cream, I'd never been sicker in my life. Absolutely no doubt it... More

We stopped here for lunch in October. We initially went past it to check out the museum nearby and noticed there was no one in line at the place. About 10 minutes later we returned and several vehicles had arrived and people were lined up at the window. We ate cheeseburgers which were very good and had "small" ice cream... More

We (my wife and I) ate breakfast here while staying in town. It's a drive through with about 5 stools inside for a few people to eat at the counter. We arrived early enough to get a spot. With a direct view into the kitchen I could see that they were making my biscuits and gravy from scratch, rather than... More

I don't understand why this place is popular. The ice cream is average, although in enormous portions. The customer service is extremely slow and indifferent to customers.

Called in as we left Hood River for our Bacon-Cheese Burgers and two small fries. Ready when we got there. Often long lines in the summer and on weekends makes calling in our order smart! And their soft ice cream is marvelously thick and good!! This place has been a family spot for years!!
