We visited during the Pie Festival right before July 4 fireworks. The lines had about 8-10 people waiting and yet they moved quickly and food quality was great. Good management! Chocolate cherry sundae was wonderful!

Like a DQ, only locally owned. Variety of offerings that you would expect. Located on a busy corner of traffic with only outside picnic tables.
