“On the spot where Harry worked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a real soda fountain on the spot where Harry Truman worked as a young man. The sodas and malts are ok. Get a single cone - they're really good - and walk around the Square where Harry used to walk.

It is a great place to go get something sweet. We had milk shakes, but they have banana splits, ice cream cones and many other delitaces.

“A Trip Back in Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

This little place is on the " old town square", it is a real soda shop. Ice cream is very good and the prices are right. It is also somewhat of a place of history. Seems that Harry Truman has his first job there when he was 16 years old.
