“We wanted to love it but...”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is one of those places that sticks around because it's been around so long and I suspect people come back for the memories. In the end, the food is just okay and the place is not very clean. Maybe just grab some ice cream and call it good.

“Best ice cream”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

they make their own ice cream so shakes are great. Also the best hamburgers and fries! only about 6-8 booths so it gets crowded but always a favorite.

“Line out the door but worth it”
Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

Home made ice cream! My milkshake was perfect - thick and tasty and the single scoops were actually doubles masquerading as singles.

“Great shakes and Burgers”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We've been stopping here for nearly 30 years for their homemade milkshakes and malts, but their burgers are just as notable. We were here last week in July, and the wait is well worth it. Don't be discouraged by a few people standing outside.

“I've been going there for 30 years when I pass through Sisters”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Really, really good ice cream. Try the licorice and the rum raisin as you won't find better. This is not garden variety ice cream that they just buy from a dairy. They also sell hamburgers, fries and that kind of comfort food. That is OK, and the tables are cramped. But this is the place to get ice cream.
