They have the best ice cream in town. They are a little on the expensive side, but their small cones are huge and plenty.

Best ice cream around. There is a wide variety of flavors and items to choose from. Their soft ice cream is hands above all others. The servings are large so bring your appetite!

This is a place to get your banana split, hot fudge Sunday or just a soft serve ice cream. The variety is vast. There is even a drive thru. The BIG problem is the service is slow. There could be 6 customers waiting in line to place their order ,4 people working and they have just one window open. Good... More

I apologize for the wait. There is no excuse for these employees poor performance. Two of our management team have been told about your comments, and they promise to run their shifts by the customer comes first standard. I find this very embarrassing, and I hope you will come to our shop again to see that we can provide you... More

While you are welcome to go inside to order your ice cream, one of the best thing about Rodeo Whip is that you can drive through! The ice cream is made on premises and delicious. The menu is vast and you are sure to find something you like. I will say that at times, the drive through line is long... More

It was very clean, the employees were very friendly, the menu is vast, and the ice cream was great. Highly recommended. Will definitely stop again when I'm in the area.

Rodeo Whip is a family favorite! Whenever we crave ice cream and feel like going out, Rodeo Whip is the ONLY place that we go. Prices are great and serving size is more than adequate. Everything is delicious. And most of their favors are made in house. We love supporting this local, small business. Oh and they even have a... More

Incredibly, this was our first visit to this local gem even though we've lived two miles away for ten years. We both had soft-serve items (I had a butterscotch sundae and DH had a chocolate malt) so I can't speak to the quality of the hard ice cream. But the soft serve is some of the best I've ever had...

Great ice cream. Best soft serve and spectacular strawberry cones. Will be a wait but worth it. Never heard a bad opinion. Open late - until 10 PM or 11 PM. Try the shakes. Wow.

Wow this is the best ice cream in DeLand, maybe in all of Central Florida. This place is always packed and many of my friends said I need to try, so I did. I got a large cup of Salted Caramel and Butter Pecan. Both were rich, creamy and amazing. They have so many flavors or hard ice cream and... More

Rarely have I ever said that something was the best ever but this place really does have the best ice cream I have ever eaten. They have many flavors and it is so fresh tastes like they just made it. I had the maple walnut which was delicious and loaded with Walnuts. I also had the White Pistachio and it... More
