“Bobby Sue's is our favorite local spot for home made ice cream. To get there, back out to E. Danforth and go left. At the end of E. Danforth, go straight (the middle way) across, and follow that road until it intersects with Eaton Rd (Rt 153) about 2 miles. You will see a funky green mobile home residence on your right. TURN right (onto 153), and Bobby Sue's will be about 1/2 mile up on the left hand side. It's usually open until about 9 or 9:30 pm. The black raspberry is excellent!”
