I had a handmake milkshake and it was excellent. I haven't had anything else there but I'd return if it were still there...I'm thinking it's gone now.

Two cones double dip's over $10. My opinion not worth it save your money and buy a gallon at Walmart for $7.

It turns out this is a legitimate operation even though the name sounds a little hokey. Their ice cream was served cold, and you have to eat it quickly before it melts. Great value.
