Unless you grew up in the midwest you probably haven’t heard of this chain. It was new to me and I was pleasantly surprised to see a wide variety of flavors that are unique when compared to other ice cream chains. Located in a strip mall at the corner of Tropicana and Hualapai, there is no indoor seating. As a matter of fact, you don’t enter the establishment at all to order. A large menu next to the walk-up-and-order windows lists all the flavors and specialty items available. It can get busy at nights and on weekends so you’ll have plenty of time to decide what you want.

Portion sizes are generous, with a “single scoop” actually consisting of three small scoops of ice cream. The product itself is pretty good. There are plenty of chocolate truffles in the chocolate raspberry truffle flavor, the New York style cheesecake ice cream was also full of cheesecake chunks, and malt balls and bits of graham crackers dotted the Graham Central Station ice cream. All were creamy and somewhat airy, but with a sugary and grainy finish. With summer just around the corner there’s no doubt the lines will get even longer.
