Stopped in and had a great lunch. If you are in the area it's a must stop in. Had a hamburger and a hot fudge brownie sunday. However I'm sure any choice would be a good one.

We expected to see Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bea. Loved how they kept up with the old fashion look, even the counter. We only ate ice cream but Ohhhhh was it good! The Tevis family!

Have visited Tom's for nearly 65 years and it continues to deliver too much good ice cream and the same furniture I recall from the 50's.

They make their own ice cream fresh daily and they also have fresh roasted nuts. the nuts are a little too salty for some tastes. I love their tin roof sundae. I have been going their since 1985. great value also.

Tom's has been around for a long time and I grew up eating Tom's Ice Cream. The vanilla is awesome with strawberry topping!!
