Another Shout Out for Louie's Ice Cream

Jeda | Aug 8, 2006 03:08 PM

Thanks to the board, we sauntered over to Louie's last night for some tasty ice cream. I couldn't find an address anywhere, just the cryptic "on Broadway by the entrance to the McGrath Highway near the cheap gas places," but worried I didn't need to be - Louie's has a big neon sign, easy to read and find. Walked up to the counter, intoxicated by the options - slush in 9 flavors, including coffee and mango, hard ice cream in a few dozen, soft serve, frozen yogurt, etc. I went with a kid-sized scoop of grapenut custard ($2 and softball-sized), dc went with a mocha chip frappe ($4 and probably 24 oz). We agreed the frappe was a little thinner than we like (possible remedy to ask for it "extra thick" next time), but the grapenut custard was delightful - the perfect melty/softness and deliciously custardy and not too sweet. I'm new to grapenut ice cream, but I'm a fan. They had frozen pudding on their menu, too, which sounded intriguing, and might be my next ice cream pick. Louie's is definitely my new favorite neighborhood ice cream place - tasty, good portions, excellent prices, nice atmosphere. There are picnic tables outside, and there were lots of neighborhood kids eating ice creams the size of their heads.
