Hubby and I stopped for shakes and were not disappointed. A perfect substitute for dessert. He enjoyed a chocolate peanut butter shake and I selected the chocolate mint shake. Made to order, they were fresh, thick and delicious.

This is the best place to get a milkshake. They are thick shakes. Highly recommend the red velvet milkshake. The chocolates they sell there are awesome as well
