“The ice cream was good, but when you're rated #1, you should have ample staff working the counter!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stopped by Chaparral for some ice cream after enjoying lunch at Anita's Cocina, but trying to get the ice cream was really a joke! Only 2 people were working the ice cream counter, but one of the two kept delivering meals to the seated diners, which was OK, but that left just one person to run the counter, scoop the ice cream and ring up the orders. It just seemed really unorganized. To top it off, when the guy got all his orders delivered, he decided to bus tables instead of helping scoop ice cream; and there must have been 10 people waiting in line. It just seemed really odd to me, maybe someone called in sick. But, they did have a 3 man band playing music that afternoon, which was most enjoyable. The place was busy and quaint, but they need to improve the speed at the counter, or just hire more people!

“Take a break for Ice Cream and Entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The ice cream is amazing - even the 'small' is HUGE ! Lots of fun flavors to choose from. There is often live entertainment and other events - check their website.

“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

A great selection of homemade ice cream...you can buy a single or a double,but a single is a double...Hugh serving.You can have two flavors in a single serving. There is also a counter service for lunch food...looked great. Surprise....we we entertained with live western music while we ate our treat.We made a point of re-visiting this establishment later on in the week on our way back from another town....great ice cream...great ambiance.

this local ice cream parlour offers not only great treats but live entertainment as well. We have visited this venue a couple of times and have enjoyed it every time. The local entertainers add to the ambiance.
