“Must Visit if You're in Arroyo Grande”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

After a day visiting the beach or wine tasting, head over to Doc Burnstein's and treat yourself to some ice cream. They have a ton of unique flavors to choose from, and have a lot of fun ice cream-related gifts. I'm partial to Bittersweet Chocolate and Mexican Chocolate. My husband loves their Birthday Cake ice cream. :)

“rocky road to die for”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Wow!!!!! there is a reason this place has lines out the door. Great service but you have to be willing to stand in the line for it.
From what I hear everything on the menu is great. I had the rocky road and left impressed and happy.
Something special in the AG village.

I used to go to Bernardo's across the street when I was a kid. While that's long gone, I can now take my kids to a cool ice cream parlor, thanks Doc!!
