I went here for a low calorie yogurt they sell. I wanted it in a flavor. Other places just add the flavoring to vanilla without an extra charge. This place charged for the flavor. My husband had a sundae. Lets just say that it was...More

Hours say 10pm but they are closed by 9.. for an establishment open only during the summer, you'd think they'd want as much business as possible. Not friendly either.

This is a great place to go on a hot summer night. It is on a busy main road, but it has a small parking lot and a fenced in area with picnic tables where you can enjoy your ice cream while watching the traffic...More

Still excellent after 50+ years in business. Now they also serve Del's Lemonade! There is usually a line but it is worth the wait! Last time I got an upside down banana split in a large milkshake cup and it was great!!!

Dinner at Hon's House of Noodle (Pho Hon) across the street, then Dairy Twirl was a perfect combination. Dairy Twirl has classic soft serve (custard, we called it in the South), and we found people lined up when we arrived. There's a good-sized parking lot...More

Mike used to own this place and the soft serve was the best. Its good, but no where as good as before. The portions are a little skimpy. Its worth trying if you're in the area.
