I took my grandkids here for a quick lunch and they all LOVED their shakes! I had a cinnamon low fat shake that was scrumptious. We ordered burgers, fish, chicken strips and hot dogs; everyone ate it all and the service was fast.

If you are looking for great ice cream and the old drive-in feel this place is it. The staff were friendly and quick. I had a chocolate shake and it tackled the ice cream craving on a hot day. We will be back. Travel safe...

Awesome food and even better ice cream. Had a burger and a caramel malt and it was the best in town! DQ has nothing on Zestos! Location is seasonal and it serves as a "sign of Spring" when it opens back up every year. Interior...More
