Good flavors!! right in the center of town-walk the strip and stop in for a beer or come here for ice cream. You see a lot of families here.

I love Mike's! I stopped in here by chance when I first moved to the area, and was blown away by their ice cream (my favorite is the red velvet). I am not sure of its history, not being a native, but I am sure it has been around for awhile. It's located right in the thick of the action... More

Loved the ice cream sodas. I had a blueberry soda with blueberry cheesecake ice cream one day and a peach soda with vanilla ice cream the next. Super yummy!

You can't go wrong here when your craving some good old fashion ice cream. Best part are the hours 8am to 12am! And don't forget to grab a cup of Jo while there. Friendly, courteous, and fun staff.

Got an awesome chocolate malt here. The spot can be very busy, and the inside gets packed. If you are a sweets or ice cream lover, worth a stop if you're downtown.

I had the butter pecan ice cream and it was awesome. It was a nice place to stop during the evening because the location is perfect for downtown activities.

Great find thanks to Trip Advisor. We stopped at Mike's after an afternoon of boot shopping on Broadway. Really good ice cream, and so many choices. The line was a little long so we didn't get to try as many flavors as we would have like. Cute decor. Worth a stop when you're in town. And did I mention the... More
