I have been coming here since I was a kid. And it is still excellent. Try a chocolate marshmallow malt for a treat that will make you think you have died and gone to heaven.

Prices seem to have created higher even as dairy prices have crashed. And the servings seems to be skimpier. All the more reason to check out other places nearby. Their ice cream is $32 per gallon. WOW.

Not a fan. Same bagged ice-cream sold at 7-11. Very overpriced and service is slow. If you want quality ice cream go to Char bet's on the north side.

I don't know how they do it, but this is the best custard I've found anywhere. That's pretty high praise from someone living in Ted Drewes stomping ground. I hadn't been back through Logansport for years, but this is every bit as good as I remember it. They always have the vanilla (my favorite) and chocolate, plus a rotating flavor... More

I have been visiting this Drive In for over 50 years and while the frozen custard here is more expensive than your run of the mill ice cream, it is well worth it. This trip I stocked up with 20 quarts and drove back to New Jersey to be well supplied through the Fall and part of the winter. The... More

We were passing through Logansport and checked Yelp for ice cream. We picked the Sycamore Drive-in over DQ (you can get DQ anyplace and any time you want). Man, that was a good decision! Locals told us what treats they love, and the girls behind counter were super sweet. We got 3 of their Fruit whips, which is slushy, frozen... More

This is a staple when we visit our hometown. Ownership and management have changed from time to time over the years but one thing that's always consistent is the service and the ice cream!

Great Shakes... and special orders are no problem. Just tell them what you want. You can even ask them to make it and explain how. It's always service with a smile.

Not a whole lot of food choices but good enough for this type of food establishment. Food is very tasty and ice cream is great. Not one item is reccomend over the other although I haven't tried everything quite yet. Prices are good as well that's always a plus.
