    If you're buying a pre-packed half gallon and the flavor you want is gone from the fridge in the front, don't fret, just ask for it! They always have stock in the back (in my experience anyway) .. :)

    $6 milkshake is worth it, definitely. I got a Dutch chocolate milkshake and it was like drinking heaven, as if dozens of lustrous maidens were massaging my taste buds with whispered adorations.

    Greatly delicious Family-Owned house-made ice cream, shakes & floats. They supply many local businesses & coffee shops such as Buster's in South Pasadena. 👍

    It's Cash Only here but Chase is across the street. The flavors are rich, creamy, & delicious. If you want water don't ask for a cup, they'll charge you for a bottle. There is a fountain in the front.

    Order a Lychee ice cream + Cranberry sorbet shake (delish!), but not from the guy wearing glasses. A tip? Don't chastise customers, we tend to talk about our experiences. Great 'cream, lousy service.

    I don't understand the positive reviews. Product is very average (far too sweet), service is not particularly friendly, parking is very limited, there's no restroom, and credit cards aren't accepted.

    The brownie sundae with one scoop of toffee ice cream is big enough to share. Topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, peanuts, and a cherry, it hits the spot every time.
