“Great ice cream at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

While on vacation we stopped here for soft serve ice cream and were not disappointed. They had lots of flavors to choose from and the prices were very reasonable. Jack Frost Dairy Bar is far better than the Dairy Queen at home for taste and value.

“Excellent ice cream shop very convenient to I 40.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

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.
