Farr's always has the freshest ice cream in the city. The number system makes the line go quickly. Staff is always friendly.

So many flavors to choose from. Whatever you choose it will be awesome. And their waffle cones are the best. Their chocolate chip cookie dough is my favorite.

What a neat experience! We had read that Farrs is the best ice cream in Utah. And I will agree that it was delicious! Like going into an old fashioned ice cream shop. So many choices of ice cream flavors. Big scoops and good value! Busy place....so be sure to take a number so you get waited on!

Have been going to Farr Ice Cream since I was a child. My mom took me and my siblings and I took my son.

Want traditional local favorites like black licorice, huckleberry, and green pine apple sherbet? This is the place! Along with all your standard favorites. This is a time honored classic and great place for real old fashion icecream
