Get off I 40 and enjoy a step back in time at Jack Frost, great flavor selection, very tasty. Worth the short side trip from I 40.

Great 50's style drive in ice cream shop. Approx 1 mile off I 40. Large selection of flavors and sundaes all homemade. No inside seating but lots of picnic tables under shade trees. This place is really neat and spotlessly clean. WARNING they close for the winter.

If you're looking for great homemade ice cream, this is the place. It's been around forever and for a good reason - great ice cream. It's a walk up, outdoor dairy bar. If you like ice cream this is the place to go. Try the hot fudge milkshake!
