A very refreshing way to cool down. The frozen Custard was so creamy and refreshing. The price was awesome. Good parking and easy access.

Nice ice cream shop. Super friendly - they said lemon ice was out& when I said I was out of town, they made some! Ice doesn't compare with the kind you get in Chicago, but mixed with custard it was good. Nice family place.

A great place for a cool treats ! Italian Ice and even sugar free Italian ice, milkshakes, and sundaes are a part of their tasty menu. Family friendly and great staff at this shop. There's even an app for rewards for free treats.

This chain serves true Italian Water Ice, just like I got as a child in Philly. Unlike the other locations in the area, there is limited indoor seating. Custard and blends of custards with waterice are served (shackes, gelatis). Service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Expect to pay $2-5 per treat, depending on size. My wife and I...
