Handles is a local ice cream shop that has been around for decades. If your an ice cream lover this is a must for you. People stand outside in line in the middle of winter for their ice cream treats.

Oh my!! Handels makes their fantastic ice cream fresh daily. Chocolate pecan is the most popular, but they have about 30 other types to choose from. Their menu also includes sundaes, milkshakes, and much more.

Handel's has the best ice cream that I've ever had. Made on the premises, it is always fresh and tasty. They serve a tremendous peppermint stick ice cream, but unfortunately only in December. Open year round!

Best praline ice cream ever! Open in the winter for those summertime cravings!! The only thing missing is an outside or inside seating area.

Wow. So the toughest part is which flavor, or combination thereof to choose. Being a natural-born klutz I opted for a dish over a cone and chose the Chocoholic Chunk. The portion was quite generous and the ice cream itself was just outstanding. Wow! This...More
