“There's no mistaking Zimmerman's for Dairy Queen...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

...and that's a compliment. Located in a former gas station, it feels as if it's been there forever.
Big selection priced right. If you do your eating on the spot, you'll get your share of the noise and
traffic of Route 68. But, hey, that's western Pennsylvania for you.

“the most unfriendly ice cream shop around”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

pricey, twist cones are hollow inside, milkshakes are already half melted when you get them. no pets allowed even near the building. if you are walking past with your dog, they will yell at you. no other items from other shops or stores. no pops, no other food items. many, many rules for a place that is supposed to be fun. picnic tables are more like "ick-nic" tables. old, splintered, weather worn, warped, and always sticky! have a good selection of items, and good hard ice cream, but portions are small. drive the few extra miles and go to king cones castle up the road.

“Tasty - cute little shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

Family owned for years, it's the only ice cream place in town :) It is pretty reasonably priced and has some picnic tables outside to sit on. We usually get our ice cream and take a walk around town while eating. Support Small-Town America - get your ice cream at Zimmermans :)
