Outside covered tables and a varied fast food/ice cream menu offers inexpensive place to eat, loved by locals and school kids from nearby high school--not too far from I80 access. They have quick service and are a friendly staff. If it's not generic enough for...More

Not sure if I caught them on a bad night or what. No.1 issue is it was very dirty. They need to clean up the front walk-up. Paint it. Tear down some of the 1,000 germy-looking posters with tape that's been up there for last...More

The food and ice cream are okay and cheap but the servers can be really air headed. They serve from one of two windows on either side of the business and sometimes they are taking orders on one side so you wait there, and then...More

If you want to experience a unique ice cream shop, this is the place to go. The employees are very friendly and the ice cream desserts are great. My family and I are "locals" and Big Star is a hometown favorite - the best soft...More

Over the years, I have had 2 milkshakes and a hundred Comets. So, you could probably guess what I would recommend here. People like to compare the Comet to the DQ Blizzard. The Comet, with all the available flavors, beats the Blizzard hands down.

$3.95 for this? The cup size: medium...the actual contents: child size! This hot fudge sundae should have been called a cold fudge disappointment. One very small scoop of ice cream, cold "hot" fudge, and a tiny top of whipped cream. This used to be our...More

Walked over from hotel when we saw the ice cream shop.....we ordered a small shake, but did not really expect a child size, maybe 8-10 oz cup, and it was kind of pricey for the size, but it was still nice to take a short...More

While the ice cream I had was fine, the Cheese steak sandwich was not edible. There was an outside eating area, which was under cover. Would not recommend for anything other than ice cream.

Surprised to find this little spot I now recommend to everyone. Looks like an ice creamery, but no...it's WAY MORE than that. Delish gyros, meatball sandwiches and more. I can't believe the awesome selection of ice cream, brownie chocolaty ooey-gooy goodness or the apple pie...More
