Skip Dairy Queen and get yourself a shake, sundae, or cone at the Bonanza Freeze! Tons of flavors! Last time I had a marshmallow and caramel shake! One of my kids loves the apple flavor swirled cone!

Tried the soft ice cream cones with the flavor burst of raspberry and piña colada. They were so good we had to go back the next night and do it again. This place is a must stop when you are going through Butte Montana

Just good ice cream and good food if you want a little taste of Butte other than pasties and pork chop sandwiches.

Popular with locals and us! Basic fast food but the burgers are lovely and the milkshakes really tasty. Constant business so they must be doing something right. We discovered this last time and so make sure lunchtime we can stop for a snack if local.

It's soft serve ice cream but they add REAL fruit for flavor of the week. I had a regular hamburger that was delicious. Service at walk up window was great.
