“A Local Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

How can you not love a drive-in ice cream place that has been around for years, is located on a very busy intersection of two local highways, and usually has lines 5 or more deep?

The Dairy Frost, at the intersection of routes 29 and 30, does it right. Soft and hard ice cream, many flavors, sundaes, floats, dips, you name it, they have it.

Service is quick, there are some tables (outdoor seating only) but if you are like me, you'll get your treat and then sit in the car with your friends / family and enjoy the ice cream dripping down your chin.

A pleasure for adults and children alike. the best place to stop on a sunny summer evening!

“The best ice cream around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

This place has the best soft ice cream in the state. Cones are very big and the special flavor of the day is always a good choice. Homemade banana on Mondays is the best.
Be prepared to wait in line at night because it's always busy but worth the wait.

“Best Ice Cream Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The Dairy Frost has the best soft ice cream in the area.
I get a sunday - a small is big enough - a small cone is big too!
IF you really love ice cream you may want to try a larger size!
They have a different flavor each nite along with vanilla and chocolate.
I love the coffee (Tuesday Nite) and the pistachio (Thurs Nite).
Just ice cream and Italian ice - always a line - They are open into the fall.
