“Great Date Shake from Great Shakes”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Shared a date shake this past weekend and it was awesome. They had some other interesting flavors (strawberry/butterscotch, key-lime, peanut butter banana) I wanted to try but, unfortunately, we weren't in town long enough to go back. It's probably a good thing I don't live nearby as I would be stopping by several time/week. Will definitely stop here come by again the next time we're in town.

“When a shake becomes art.”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Fantastic shakes made with high quality and homemade ingredients. I was enjoying the Date Walnut...it was delicious. The young man (owner's son?) comes from behind the counter to check my satisfaction level. It seems he was worried because the shake was made only with medjool dates rather than their usually three date blend because of a supply issue. Wow! These folks are passionate about shakes. Outstanding!

“Yum!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We had a caramel pecan malt and it was great! All home made syrups and even topped with a donut. We were greeted and served by the owner's son, who chatted with us as he made our amazing dessert. I highly recommend trying this place.

“Seriously good”
Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

Great shakes isn't just a name. House made caramel and other sauces, house made marshmallows toasted to order and a delicious little doughnut (bake not fried making it more cake like), this place is serious about quality ingredients. Service was great - helpful in making choices and knowledgeable about the product. A must for shake and malt lovers!

“Most Delicious Shakes Ever!”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Can't believe I never noticed this place. They have AMAZING shakes, and that's all they do. Tried the peppermint fudge & carmelized banana, but I plan to go back every week till I taste them all! Looking forward to lemon- lavender and the key lime. Truly, there's nothing that compares to this business. Too bad TA has a picture of pizza.
