    Words cannot describe how much I love their ice cream, but the back room is great too! I like to take my kids to Livingston park across the street and when they get hot, we go over for ice cream!

    Milky Way mudslide is awesome! Get there early otherwise you will be waiting. It is a very popular place and there is always a line.

    Coconut chicken tenders from here are to die for! Suggestion: if you don't have a large appetite split with a friend!

    Awesome chicken tenders...well worth the 45-60 minute wait times. Or you can do take out and avoid the ambience.

    Great gluten free menu, and make sure to ask for it. The coffee heath bar ice cream is the best around.

    Get extra apricot dipping sauce for your chicken tenders. It freezes fine, as do the tenders themselves.

    People that grew up here think it's the greatest thing ever. Food is only okay, kind of expensive, very old unhip atmosphere.

    DO NOT order hot pastrami sandwich. It is neither hot nor pastrami...and waitresses could use some rubber underwear...so SLOW. The girlfriend liked the chicken fingers but everything else was a fail
