If you love ice cream, this is the place to go to. They have a great variety of ice cream, from hard ice cream, soft serve, and frozen yogurt I have been going there every Sunday this summer and I order the same thing. It's a sundae served with coconut almond bar hard ice cream. It tastes just like almond... More

Still excellent after 50+ years in business. Now they also serve Del's Lemonade! There is usually a line but it is worth the wait! Last time I got an upside down banana split in a large milkshake cup and it was great!!!

Dinner at Hon's House of Noodle (Pho Hon) across the street, then Dairy Twirl was a perfect combination. Dairy Twirl has classic soft serve (custard, we called it in the South), and we found people lined up when we arrived. There's a good-sized parking lot next door. Previous reviewers complained about changes in quality, but I understood that Dairy Twirl... More

Mike used to own this place and the soft serve was the best. Its good, but no where as good as before. The portions are a little skimpy. Its worth trying if you're in the area.

The quality of the soft serve has gone down hill since Dairy Twirl has been sold. They do have Del's which is a nice addition, but the ice cream is disappointing.
