“YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Our kids saw the sign and they were locked on for sure. We love smaller town or non franchised places. Once we stepped foot in, it was a small town feel, which we love. The staff (owner I believe) was soo nice and let us try any flavors. She encouraged it. My boys and wife are hooked on this place now. My boys wanted to go back the next day, but we were only in town for 2 days so we couldn't make it. If we are ever back in town, Grandpa's ice cream is on a "for sure" list of places to visit.

“Ice Cream in Burlington”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

Nice little ice cream shop with a decent amount of options at a fair price. Seems to be busy every time I have pasted this location. Its step up from the average Dairy Queen but will never be confused with Whitey's.

“Very Good! Grandpa is the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Really enjoy the ice cream at Grandpa's. Homemade by him for his grandkids and he made a business out of it from what I understand. I really enjoy the variety of flavors offered. Have been there 4x in the last year, and his ice cream is just as good in the winter! They also are serving hot soup this winter. Back in the summer, grandpa himself was working and he stayed open an extra few minutes just to serve us so that was definitely a plus! If you are in Burlington and like good authentic ice cream, stop by and see Grandpa!
