Had the original banana split sundae, it was fabulous. My wife had the southern pecan sundae and loved it. The chocolate ice cream i thought was simply excellent.

Bad experience overall, ice cream was too watery and found ice chunks in my ice cream. Scoop was based on weight and mine ended up coming to 6$!!!!!!!!!! (a little expensive for my icy ice cream).

What could be better than Summertime and a great ice cream cone which comes in many different flavours right from the manufacturer. Be ready to line up after dinner but it goes quickly.

Family afternoon with banana split,sundaes,ice cream cones and cake selection.Add ingredients to milk shake to personalize the flavour.Summer time enjoy swing set and sitting at picnic table until kids tired of running.Just as exciting when my parents took us for ice cream cone to cool us down after busy play day.No Air conditioner at home.

I've been coming here ever since I was a child and have very found memories of summer and delicious ice cream. My family and I favour this place because of its location, the friendly service, and the scrumptious homemade ice cream they serve.

Wasn't thrilled with the line, but the ice cream and shake was top notch....YUMMY. Met a local while waiting in line. Very friendly and very pro tourist too. I'll go back if we visit the area!

It is a bit of a drive.. outside the hustle and bustle. But well worth it! The ice cream flavors and freshness of the ingredients make this place really unique! for decades, families have been going here to enjoy the ice cream, and the swings. Surrounded by fields.. a nice outing.

We love Avondale ice cream. My kids say it's their favorite of anywhere we've traveled to and they have had quite a bit. We were disappointed when we went yesterday and it's closed until March. Trip Advisor please update this on your website. We will be back this Summer for the best ice cream
