We needed an ice cream nightcap. Clean, Friendly & Lots of choices. I had a banana split and it was loaded & had 4 cherries on top. My wife had hot fudge a little skimpy on the hot fudge.

We have lived here over a year and finally decided to give it a try and love it. The prices are good and the banana split is on point!! My mother in law had an old fashion soda and she said it was really good.

It’s affordable Edy’s Ice Cream. My family chose this place because we were hoping it would be a house-brand of ice cream. However, the Edy’s Ice Cream was still very tasty... my kids were happy!

There are nuts in many of their specialties, I can't speak for Scoops, but I think there is a high risk of cross contamination.
