The date malt shake is amazing. Place is open until 9:00 PM, so stop on the way. MANY knickknacks and other road treats.

I was a bit suspicious about the date shake but when I tasted it I was sold. Really tasty milkshake. We also had pineapple and cactus shakes. All tasty. A definite stop.

Date shakes are very good here. I enjoy stopping by and getting one when we travel to or from California from home. They also have bags of fresh dates with many varieties to choose from.

Very good date shakes but high priced, while the packaged dates are available at a very good price. There is also a Quiznos Sub Shop and convenience store on site.
