What would you expect to find foodwise in an ice cream place?

Or what would you like to see foodwise there?

    We used to go to Friendly's Ice Cream and Sandwich shops quite often when we lived in "their territory". They made a good cheeseburger and the sundaes and shakes were good too. I believe they have dropped in quality over the years, but we haven't been in one for several years.

    Braum's in the OK-TX area is a cleaner version of the same thing. Kind of a semi-FF sort of Burger place with very good Ice Cream.
    Check their menu- http://www.braums.com/

    Culver's Is definitely more of a FF and custard place. We like their menu a lot.

      We'd probably stop occasionally at places such as Friendly's or Newport Creamery, but it's near impossible to order anything without their disgusting fries. It would be nice to get simply a burger and shake.

      Ah - the good old days when one could stop at HoJo's for two franks & a shake.

              Tuna salad on white toast with mayo and a big pickle. Then, on to the ice cream..............

                This place has awesome sandwiches, soups & salads.

                They have 8 locations now, hope that doesn't make them a chain.
