The locals wait anxiously for this seasonal drive-in to open up every summer. Some folks have their favorite menu items, I just like to go there. I usually stick with ice cream. I suppose I should try some more of the food items before I...More

Our family enjoys eating at The Treat. Some of our favorites are The Fat Boy and their soft serve peanut butter ice cream. We make lots of visits during the summer!
