Always wonderful service and always great ice cream. The hotdogs are great too. If you are on AMI you should make it a point to stop by this place. The big guy behind the counter is a Hoot!!

My girl and I never miss an opportunity for ice cream on the road, and this was absolutely some of the best ice cream we have ever consumed. Family operated and they are the best!
