Angry Chicken, Large Ice Cream Cone

Sadly, these items may be gone soon. The Conway Barrel drive-in is closed and for sale, and the ice cream cone and chicken look rough -- in need of paint, etc. We visited on 09/23/17.

Why you so mad, chicken? A classic of Clear Lake, a must stop for ice cream and a pic with the angry chicken.

Large fiberglass chicken behind the Barrel Drive-in and a large fiberglass ice cream cone out front. Chicken looks like it is on a trailer so it can be moved.
