What does a sweaty Big Ragu do to cool off this summer? We leave the swim club and get a fix at JET FREEZE! Located at the corner of Grange Hall and Patterson Rd in Beavercreek, this little known secret has been satisfying customers since 1957.
A favorite of Ragu’s since his childhood and able to quench any sweet tooth, this place has the most INCREDIBLE SOFT SERVE ice cream ever. Why is the soft serve so delicious? The answer is fresh milk. We saw them pouring gallons of Reiter milk into the machine that mixes the 95% fat free treat.
Jet Freeze has chocolate and vanilla soft serve. They also specialize in strawberry, a flavor that is rare in soft serve circles. The management told us the strawberry flavoring is specially mixed by employees for that great one of a kind taste. All flavors of soft serve cones are value priced from $1.20 to $1.80 for the large cone. In fact, we had a hard time finding a menu item that was priced above 3 dollars.
The place is simple and old school. They have 70’s style booths in the inside dining room, which is like an enclosed patio. The outside dining area features decades old stone tables and benches under yellow neon bulbs. Customers look particularly handsome under this lighting. Make sure you bring cash, because they do not accept credit or debit cards.
Family owned from the start, JET FREEZE has held onto its roots, while continuing to serve tasty treats year after year. But beware, Jet Freeze is closed during the winter months, so you cannot satisfy your cravings year round. Let’s get back to the food ….
The Big Ragu is addicted to their PEANUT BUTTER SUNDAE. The Food Adventurers found out they mix their own peanut butter sauce. We also tried the Banana Split which was very tasty and filling. Another treat that Jet Freeze serves are their FLURRIES. This is a take on the Dairy Queen Blizzard, and the soft serve makes this a winner, no matter what your topping.
The menu also includes sandwiches. Let us recommend the FOOTLONG with or without chili, and check out the BBQ sandwich. Our suggestion is stick with the mainstays: soft serve or the sundaes. Be like us, stay cool and “Jet on over to Jet Freeze.”
