I have been going to Bo's since I was a small child and last week it was cleaner, brighter, and even better than in years past. The staff is super friendly, ice cream is fantastic!

Bo's is tasty, nothing flashy or out of the ordinary just old fashioned soft serve and simple toppings! Bring some bug spray if you want to enjoy your ice cream outside!
