“A must stop in Goshen”

The Chief Ice Cream
Ranked #3 of 9 Dessert in Goshen
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 May 2016

The iconic Chief is a must stop in Goshen. Home made ice cream and community event combine to make it an evening event. Our kids have since moved away but a stop at the Chief is required for every visit home.

The Chief is an icon in the Goshen area! They are best known for their peanut butter ice cream and their fruit flavors are excellent as well. They also have good shakes, malts, and sodas which you can get in any flavor! Important to know they do not take credit cards, debit cards, or checks.....CASH ONLY! They are open seasonally from mid April to Labor Day. They almost always have a line. They also serve sandwiches and drinks. This is a "to-go" outside eatery with NO DRIVE THRU. There is a nice picnic area out back. Close to a park and movie theater, shopping area.

I wouldn't go anywhere else for ice cream. Amazing quality and great selection. My favorite is lemon and raspberry in a waffle cone!

This place is one of the most desired place here in goshen Indiana. Personally I'm not to sure why the ice cream is average (except chocolate, this just taste like vanilla that has chocolate syrup mixed in it) but it is a must try if you visit goshen. Just don't expect the best ice cream in the world

The Chief is almost worshipped in Goshen. I pride myself in finding the best ice cream whenever I travel and the ice cream at the chief is good, but I don't find it outstanding. The tiny ice cream stand is open seasonally through the summer months. The only flavor I ever buy is the toasted coconut which is good, in most part because it is loaded with toasted coconut and the flavor is authentic, not fake. I've tasted many of their other flavors and they are just so so and I would argue that Breyers makes a better chocolate, butter pecan and mint chocolate chip flavors just for starts!
