An authentic Mexican Ice Cream Shop! Huge ice cream and ice pop selection made with Natural Ingredients & ... Sugar!!! Like most Traditional Mexican Ice Cream shops, the menu covers a wide range: Nachos, Smoothies, Fruit Plates (with Cream), tostaditos, Red Bulls, Gatorades, etc!! Aligning with tradition, they will provide samples of all most every ice cream! The labels may help - but its better to taste!!! Prices are NOT posted - allot of times a smile, a thank you, and some attempt at speaking Spanish, will help communication and experience. Expect occasional wait- time...its a very popular location...the product is GREAT! If your looking for menus, pricing, uniforms, fancy toppings, etc...this place isn't for you - save the bad review. In all, SMILE, ASK, SAMPLE, ASK AGAIN...SMILE..SIT DOWN & ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE.

An authentic Mexican ice cream place, known for it's fresh fruity and creamy ice-creams. Most of them come both in popsicle form and in cups/cones. If you're getting the creamy ice-creams (they add milk in it to make it deliciously creamy), I would suggest getting them in cups/cones. The staff is also very friendly.

This place is great, definitely a hidden gem. Everyone was so friendly and let my friend and I sample several flavors before we decided. I will definitely be back a lot this summer!

Wonderful service! The employees are so patient and nice. There is a popsicle menu but there was no ice cream menu posted inside, but you can find flavors listed online. Social distancing is observed and masks were worn. I have tried eight unique flavors of ice cream and they have all been exceptional with great portions for an unbeatable price, chosen from an amazing selection of authentic flavors with real pieces of fruit. Loved this place and would recommend to anyone! You can get four FULL cups (eight scoops) of ice cream for less than $20, which is what more mainstream places like Two Roosters would charge for only four *scoops*. Flavors I have tried: Guanabana: This is almost like a sorbet and contains real fruit pieces! Tangy and refreshing. Mamey: Delicious and authentic with real fruit pieces throughout. Tequila: Creamy with a boozy and genuine zip! Pinenut: Light and nutty. Tres Leches: Rich, creamy, and flavorful, a clear winner that stands out from the rest. Chongos Zamoranos: Lighter and more subdued than Tres Leches with small cookie or cake pieces, has a cinnamony aftertaste that will have you craving horchata. Fruta Seca/Dried Fruit: A creamy, subtle ice cream is PACKED with a wide assortment of flavorful nuts and dried fruit pieces (pineapple, raisin, prune, and more). Queso: Slightly salty and full of small curds of cheese, this is genuinely the cheesiest ice cream I've tried and truly impressed me as such.
