“Keep on Drivin :(”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Ice cream experience might be different but....Stopped for a quick hot dog which was served cold as if it came directly from the refrigerator which made the skin tough and impossible to eat with condiments. Cash only which almost immediately throws a red flag to most diners and most certainly an inconvenience. Highly NOT recommended. Overall a D- experience.

“Your Average Ice Cream Place”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Neat looking decorations (train motif). The ice cream is avergae priced and the selection is good. The quality is on par with the price. I would recommend that you try this place if you can brave the traffic on Rt 28.

“Fast and Good”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled on the Lil' Caboose Ice Cream last night when I realized almost the whole summer had gone by without a single spoonful of ice cream. I planned to go the Cape Cod Creamery, which is outstanding. But the lines are out of control. So we went a quarter mile down the road to Lil' Caboose Ice Cream. We were in and out in 5 minutes. The high school kids working the windows were extremely friendly. They have a wide variety of flavors and toppings. The ice cream was good, and well worth not waiting in a hour long line down the street.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

After reading reviews decided to try this place with kids. Overall, I thought it was pricey and it was average ice cream. My husband ordered a featured ice cream sundae that was suppose to be vanilla ice cream rolled in coconut with hot fudge on top. Well, he got a small bowl of vanilla ice cream with coconut flakes sprinkled on top and some hot fudge and it cost $7.01 ... insane. I ordered a coffee milkshake and it had a weird malty taste ... yuck. The kids did enjoy playing on the small wooden train but the train was filthy. The tables are so dirty and when they were done playing their hands and legs were black. Anyway, won't go back to this place and there's much better ice cream out there.

“Good ice cream, and a train for the kids.”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

A good stop for ice cream on the Cape. If you bring kids, they will want to play on the train. Friendly staff. Have stopped there each summer. The ice cream is generous and tasty.
