We eat at Island Delight every year and have never been disappointed. This year, my kids had the triple burger and I had a sub. Great Stuff. The kids said their malts were not completely mixed and had clumps .... of something other than ice cream. Go figure. They finished them. Forget the local Dairy Queen and get your ice cream here, it's good stuff.

We hit Topsail Island for a family vacation every summer, and one of the things we look forward to is ice cream at Island Delights. Our favorite is the Banana Cream Pie ice cream. Always hits the spot. I don't think I have ever been here when there wasn't a line, and for good reason. It is consistently great.

I got a waffle cone and man it was so good. They must make them from scratch. Also their ice cream is so good, even it took me a long time to eat it and when I was done, I was stuffed. Also try the cotton candy because it is great.

This little hamburger place in Surf City, NC has THE best hamburgers I have ever had. Add french fries and a chocolate shake and the juke box that plays oldies from the 50's and 60's and it's doesn't get any better than this. The place is clean and filled with antiques from the 50's and 60's. The wait staff is happy to be there and very pleasant. It's a great place for the kids because they have all flavors of ice cream and great old fashioned quarter rides outside.
