Salty fries

Had supper and ice cream here. The ice cream was great (soft serve chocolate). The chicken strip basket was mostly great, but the fries were too salty (and I normally like some salt on my fries).

I've been going here since I was little and I still love their food! They have more ice cream choices than DQ plus they give bigger portions! Their employees are friendly, so I would recommend going here.

Zesto's not only gives bigger portions for a better price than DQ, they also offer every flavor and combination imagainable. My grandson loves their peanut butter-marshmallow sundae, and I am partial to the rhubarb pie avalanche (like a DQ Blizzard). They also have the best chili dogs.

Zesto's has almost any kind of ice cream anyone could ask for. Although it is pretty good I'm still a big fan of Dairy Queen. I will go back and I think its worth a try for you as well. Employees are employees neither nice nor upsetting.

I like ice cream and I think that Zesto does a very good job. At some zesto you can see the cooks make the treats.

The Zesto in Watertown has a wide variety of hambergers, sandwiches, appetizers, fries, tacos, nachos, etc as well as chicken dinners and buckets. What is most impressive is the endless variety of ice cream products they serve. Everything from cones, sundaes, splits, parfaits, drumsticks, ice cream sandwiches & pies, malts, smoothies, floats to coffee shakes and cyclones. I counted about... More
