Best Shake

Snack City

Despite news that Snack City may be closing in the near future, for now it maintains its status as one of the best places around for authentic, homemade ice creams and truly delicious malted shakes. In a milkshake taste test for our Summer Guide this year, Snack City rose to the top of the pack for its quality ingredients and malty goodness.
