Twirly Top Drive-In: An Ice Cream Wonderland!
Just a short drive from Carlisle is a great little seasonal drive-in called Twirly Top. My family used to take us kids there every Sunday during the summer I think it's been around since the 1950's. I took my own family back there this summer and was thrilled to find it still open. We had the best ice cream I've found in ages...try their fresh fruit sundaes - they change as the summer goes by (the fresh black raspberry sundaes are to die for!) They also have a full grill menu with great burgers and cheesesteaks. They offer french fries with unlimited toppings. We ended up having to go back twice because the food had us filled up and no room for dessert. A fun, nostalgic place to go on a summer night.
Favorite Dish: Fresh fruit sundaes with the fruit coming right from the local orchards. The fresh black raspberry sundaes are my favorite, but the fresh strawberry and fresh peach were also wonderful. I had mine in a homemade waffle bowl. My husband loves their hot fudge brownie sundaes - they make their own brownies and they are huge! They often sell out of the brownies, so get there earlier in the day if you want one of those. The burgers are made from fresh ground beef and their tomatoes are fresh. All around a great place to go.
