My Dutch Chocolate and Peppermint ice cream sundae was superb! Very, very good. Wait staff good. Building needs some upgrades or refurbishing but still a fun place 'cause of the ice cream!

Thought we'd try this Scottsdale institution, but turned out to be a big mistake! The food was mediocre at best, but we couldn't get over the disgusting filth on the floor, in the ladies room, dirty leather on the booth seats and black marks on...More
