Drive up. Walk to window. Place order at the little window. Pay not too much. Wait a bit. Get exactly what you ask for: luscious burger & fries, perfect vanilla cone. Just like it used to be, forever ago.

We came close to closing time. We ordered a dipped cone. Vanilla with Chocolate Dip. HUGE and delicious! Then we shared a cheese burger with fries. Also, shared a purple cow. Unique drink with soda fuzz. Cheese burger and fries were hot and good but on the small side.

My dad and I were traveling home from a football game on Saturday and decided to stop in. All the locals were ordering ice cream, but we were hungry for a late dinner. We both ordered burgers - my dad ordered fries and I ordered onion rings. The food was cooked to order fresh (you can see the cook making... More

Delicious affordable ice cream. Large cones for 3 and change. Must stop to enjoy a classic Tupelo eatery. Hamburgers and such ok, but ice cream is 👍🏻👍🏻. Dipped cones too!

Looking for a quick place to eat and found this little jewell. It may not look like much but they make a great cheeseburger and fries. While it's noted under Fast Foods, it's not really fast. The food is cooked to order and comes out hot. While the fries are frozen type, they're good and hot. But it very very... More

Nothing fancy. Just a good old fashioned ice cream stand. Although they do serve food also. My family enjoyed the shakes and dipped cones.

This place is a neat experience! Visited with some locals (we are traveling through) and they convinced my boys to try the purple cow. The boys loved it. I would have given this a 5 rating,it parking is inconvenient.

This place has been in East Tupelo since 1955---and not much has changed or been updated-- we love stopping here after church and get ice cream or shakes-- the food isn't bad either-- this place stays packed so that should tell you something-- you'll always see people you know

This place takes me back - so many memories of loading up in the family in the old Pontiac station wagon for a treat. The chocolate malt is delicious. Perfect for a warm evening sitting at the picnic table unwinding after a long day. I will visit again!
