Oh my gosh!!!!!!this place is truly authentic old school Louisiana style snow balls. My family and I came here and actually ended up ordering another round! I currently live in pa now but grew up in Louisiana and this took me back. They even had the condensed milk to pour on top 😊

Just as they were when I was a child in Louisiana. Shaved ice with a fantastic choice of flavors. A great cheap treat for everyone!

I first discovered Rainbow Sno-cones over 20 years ago when I read Bob Morris's column in the Orlando Sentinel. The first time I pulled up there was a line - little leaguers, moms and dads, teenagers, and business people - this place attracted them all. On a hot summer day there is nothing better than an icy cold sno cone... More

My favorite snow cones has changed location. 3724 Howell Branch Road Winter Park. The new place is a little bit further away than before but not any less in value, taste, and friendliness. I LOVE taking my children to Homer's place. It is by far one of the best places in Central Florida. I drove by the old location and... More

Over 52 Flavors. As simple as it can be. . . walk up window but would can resist one of these shaved ice treats. Have cream based cones (which almost resemble ice cream) as well as sugar free ones for those that need or want to avoid sugar. THIS is one of the places I love to ride my bike... More

Pros: Great Flavors, Low Prices, Long-Time Private Owner. Cons: None. I have been visiting this location since high school. It has always been privately owned, operated by one who truly enjoys serving this delightful treat. There's not much to say - the flavors are wonderful, the prices are low, and it's a great frozen treat that you don't find often.... More

Quite simply the best snow cones. A shot of condensed milk and some tigers blood and you will never forget. My children love it!

Nothing to say in depth. Bare bones shop. Nothing fancy is needed. Really good, yet old school sno-cones.

This is a place I grew up going to as a kid. Now, my own child loves it too! It is still run by the same man, and it's decor is simplistic and charming. We love snow cones here...it is delicious! Many flavors to choose from, and they even will supply for a birthday party/event for $40...cooler full of shaved... More
