I have frequented Borden's since my childhood. It has been refurbished since then, reflecting a 50s-style diner. It's a great place to take the whole family, and there is plenty on the menu to please everyone! Coloring pages to keep the kids busy, as well.

Staff was wonderful and the servings were generous! Ice cream was a special treat. They also have nachos and hot dogs for a light snack. Old fashioned ice cream shop feel with kids movie on the tv.

Decor is retro, servers are friendly, ice cream portions are large, prices are reasonable - what is there not to like?

we went to Borden's because it is the last standing Borden's ice cream parlor. The décor is old fashioned memorabilia and of course the hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and nuts is PHENOMINAL. Just as delicious as I remember from childhood. There is a...More
