Love their ice cream. Was able to try a few flavors before picking. Nice back yard to set with a few tables inside. Price a little high. 8$ for small cup and about 5$ for a Dixie cup.

This is a family friendly, accommodating place to enjoy delicious ice cream treats. Our grands are DQ fans but LOVE to visit Mom and Pop's when they are in town. It's the first answer to where should we go for ice cream!

Love this shop and the ice cream!! The Munchie Madness, Banana Cream Pie, and Oreo Overload are my favorites! Love how they have objects, pictures, and descriptions of the buildings history inside.
