My friend takes me here for a “famous date milk shake “. It is a old building shop and i can smell the odor when I just come in to the door! I think it needs to be remodeled and keep it clean for customers.

Anticipating typical store dates - overly sweet, sticky or chewy - imagine my delight at finding the best darned dates in the universe! These are the guys who developed varieties, and who created the incredible date milkshake. Then they went a step further and opened...More
