Heard roses had good shakes, so that was the purpose. Got here right as the shop was opening. The owner greated me with a worm smile. With out delay I was asked what I would like. With some recommendations from the workers I selected a...More

Roses is a neighborhood gathereing place. Nothing better than a break and a Strawberry Milkshake on a busy Saturday afternoon. If you choose to, you can eat a homemade hamburger or hot dog with the kids. A double scoop Ice Cream Cone as a reward...More

I took my kids here thinking this would be a wholesome after school treat. First, it is a poker/lotto deli masquerading as an ice cream store. So you have the gambling clientele in and out. Second, the ice cream tastes icey and freezer burned as...More
