Pretty good ice cream milkshakes. They have a variety of homemade icreams available in different sizes, and also in the form of sundaes and milkshakes. My friends loved the cheerwine ice cream. Chocolate was ok. Strawberry was very good as well.

The food is awesome. I had a hotdog and it reminded me of the great hotdog sells we had at church in the 70’s. Nothing was better that a church fundraiser hotdog but Tony’s hotdogs are awesome. They also have the greatest milkshakes ever!!!

Delicious hot dogs and shakes People lined up for the grape ice cream. Served quickly. Not a fancy restaurant. But in the area for many many years.

Fresh home made ice cream and milkshakes, in a rusty 70s setting. They have 25-30 different flavors. Tried the chili dog. It was good too.

Nice place, great ice cream. The atmosphere is unique, the shop takes you back to the 50’s or 60’s Good variety of flavor, medium range prices.
