Before I begin this update, I'd like to give a shout out to BeemerBoy, without whom I might never have heard of this place to begin with, and also for reminding me about it on Facebook just before we headed down that way. Thanks, Scott.
Part of a strip mall, but has allegedly been there for over 50 years.
According to the menu, their signature "Kitchen Sink" is reserved for parties of four or more, is $12.95 per person, and sharing is not allowed. So by my reading, if there are four of you, it will cost $51.80. But if there are five of you, the same amount of ice cream will cost a total of $64.75.
Real thing, or total BS? I'll let you decide for yourself. (Or, you know, you could Google it, I guess.)
There's a walk-up window if you just want ice cream. Said ice cream, incidentally, is the best we've found so far in Florida.
The inside of the first room, looking back at the entrance. License plates and craziness seems to be the theme.
I'm very excited to be here.
These are not today's flavors. These are just today's *special* flavors. There are about 35 or 40 normal ones.
We're shown to the second room (which was actually the original half of the establishment, I believe.)
The food is quite expensive, for what it is. But it is good, and the place is packed from about noon on. Luckily, we got there right when they opened (at 11:30am) and had no problems. Also, they give you free popcorn. :oP
Our burgers were $12.95 a piece, and didn't even come with fries. But, again, they were really good. The chili cheese fires were just okay, though.
Dunt-dunnana-na-naaaah! For the record, the big one is mine. It's a "Chocolate Suicide Sundae," except that I had them make it with "Death by Chocolate" ice cream instead of just plain old chocolate. So it was doubly deadly. But that's not what caused my heart attack....
The only bad thing about Jaxson's.
If you like ice cream (and are independently wealthy), you should definitely go, if you're in the area. And why might you be in the area? Well, there does just happen to be a pretty good wooden roller coaster about a mile away. Stay tuned....
