Enjoy a piece of history when you visit this iconic walk-up stand. The BEST ice cream, milkshakes, chili dogs, and more can be found here. Friendly service & excellent prices "sweeten" your visit!

This little vintage drive-up ice cream joint has hot dogs, milkshakes, a signature upside down banana split, and sundaes. My favorite though is a simple swirl cone of soft serve chocolate and vanilla ice cream.
