The ice cream was so delicious we went back a second night to try other flavors. Chocolate chip cookie dough was good and so was the praline pecan.

I love, love, love ice cream...and this place was absolutely awesome! I had the mocha fudge ice cream and a banana bite. Amazing! Banana bites are chocolate covered banana pieces with peanut butter in between. I wish I could have this as dessert every night!

Best ice cream I've ever had. Creamy and flavorful. Tried four different flavors, including their mushroom ice cream. Not one of them disappointed me..

With the reviews on TA, I had to try it out. I decided the very very long lines was a good sign, so I waited. And because several reviewers had raved about the Mushroom flavor, I took a chance and tried it. It was really...More
