We went here this past weekend, and the ice cream was really good. After hearing about this on TV for a while, this certainly lived up to the hype. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful, would recommend going here.

I think the cones were around $3.50 or $4.00. They are one size only, huge! You can get it in a dish also. Worth it.
