“Great Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lots of flavors to choose from. Good ice cream and lots of toppings too. Serving size was ample and shakes were very good.

“Not the same as when Carl had it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The turtle bars have thin watery ice cream now, not the rich ice cream that Carl used when he owned it.

“Great Dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We went with the family. They have a very large menu, but we went just for ice cream. They have hard and soft serve ice cream, All 3 of us hard the hard ice cream and it was great. Very value priced as well. Highly recommended.

I like to go to the one in Bloomington - Not Normal, IL. I always get great service there and my favorite icecream. Their menu is vast, and there is something for everyone!
