Rich's banana split - Leatherby's Family Creamery

I heard good things about this place from friends who grew up in the area. The sundaes and treats are gigantic, but honestly I wasn’t impressed. The ice cream didn’t taste special and the toppings, although there was plenty of them, were generic and common. Good for Leatherby’s to keep the soda fountain alive, but I think that I’ll splurge on my sweet calories elsewhere. The service was young and lacking, and the experience was mundane and uneventful. I felt no joy during my visit which is unfortunate because that’s exactly was an old-school soda fountain should evoke. Kinda sad.

  1. I’m sad you didn’t enjoy it. I’ve been meaning to get back to leatherbys.. perhaps it just really isn’t as good as I remember when I was a kid!
