Twistee Treat

This ice cream shop in an ice cream cone was refurbished and reopened May 26, 2019. So nice to see it open again. The new name is Frigid Queen. The owners are the owners of the ORIGINAL Burger King (not the chain restaurant), also in Mattoon, Illinois.

Rhoadside Custard - Cone-Shaped Stand

She's still standing! Restaurant is only open during the summer months, so no treats for me. I did take a few sweet pictures though!

Ice cream stand shaped like a big vanilla soft serve ice cream cone.

[Cindy Pringle, 07/29/2007]

This is a pre-fab building -- we've seen them in places thoughout the US. They're designed so that the cone can be moved to another location if this spot doesn't work out!
