Fun drive up stand with great frozen custard. Large menu with classics like banana-splits and brownies with custard and hot fudge.

“Family Friendly Good Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Awesome homemade custard. I was able to get two kid's cones and two adult cones for around $6.00. The employees are friendly and they have an outdoor area where your family can sit. It would be nice if they added a kids play park. They also have a drive through. There is a 50's nostalgia feel to the place. They make incredible root beer floats with their homemade custard. If you have children they can watch the custard being made while they eat their treats. A fun yummy place.

“Great old-fashioneds!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Stopped by this unassuming little drive-in and was delighted that they serve old fashioned chocolate (among other flavors) sodas like we used to get at the old time soda shops. Very authentic and very tasty. The frozen custards were generous and the fruit toppings were amazing!!!

“Cool Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2011

I'm a sucker for frozen custard and this little drive-in won't let you down. Servings are big and the fruit blends were brimming with real, fresh fruit.

Also had some hotdogs, which were ok. The dogs themselves seemed like quality dogs, but the toppings were nothing special. They have a chili dog, slaw dog, Chicago-style, kraut dog, etc.

Be aware, this is a drive-in - no tables, but a roomy area with community benches.
All in all, a cool stop.
