“Ice cream, cars, and a movie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

This is a popular local soft serve. It has a lot of original flavors, including the fruit swirls that garner the name. Come on a summer Saturday and you can have your cone, walk around the parking lot and check out the hot rods and antique car show and then finish with a movie under the stars.

“Great place for ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

This is a "very local" operation to get great soft ice cream and italian ice. It is locally operated and frequented by the local fire department personnel (so you know it has to be good). It has the basic vanilla/chocolate/swirl flavors but they have so many different toppings you can have a different one each visit. Also offers shakes. They have several tables and even a two person swing that you can sit back and enjoy your ice cream. It is located behind the McDonalds and Burger King and often there is an old car show going on in the Burger King parking lot. If you are in the mood for soft serve ice cream than you must visit. They are open from mid Spring (I think April) until Veterans Day in November. Limited hours during the day when school is in session.
