The very BEST homemade ice cream in the World. They have a terrific non-ice cream menu also. I absolutely love their tangerine/vanilla soft serve ice cream and their vanilla shakes are delicious. Now throw in a Vanilla Coke and a chicken soft taco and what more could you want? Out of town friends always want to go there before going... More

Staff is very friendly and you never have to wait long for your hot food and beverage. I love their tacos and taco supreme and my husband is a huge fan of the gyros.

The Milky Way is one of the places everyone goes and takes their kids for a treat. They have no seating, other than outside picnic tables. But, they added a drive thru a few years ago when they decided to stay open longer when the weather becomes a bit colder and standing outside to wait on your order is harder..... More

This place is an icon of Frankfort for me. The ice cream is good, but the tacos are my favorite hands down.

When people who grew up in Frankfort come back home, this is one of the places they go to visit first. Good ice cream, shakes, and my favorite diet vanilla cokes. Also, they are known for their tenderloins and tacos.

I grew up visiting the Milky Way. Love them! Good food and ice cream. Espcially like the tangerine vanilla twist in a cone. YUM!

I started coming here as a kid and every time I come to visit my parents I come again. It's a classic ice cream store that is delicious.

Mediocre food and deserts at high prices, slow service and a horrible location all lead to a place to avoid. Although it should harken to the days of yesteryear, a bloated menu of low-quality food at high prices just takes nostalgia and flushes it away. This could be a great place but they seem happy with mediocrity as does the... More

I always enjoy stopping here when I'm in town on business. Great food, affordable prices. Would recommend even if you're high passing through.

A hidden treasure you can't pass up. Locally owned, many many favorites! They have an endless selection of flavored sodas. They will be busy though.
