Whiteys Ice Cream

Reviewed By Hutch333id - Cochrane, Canada

We first visited this place almost 20 years ago while travelling around the mid-west and seeing friends. Well, now we're back in the area so we could not miss out on the opportunity to have another Whitey's shake. Twenty years ago we were overwhelmed with the number of choices and after all that time, things hadn't changed. Thankfully, we caught the place between rush times and had the leisure of taking our time. Finally, we made it and were not disappointed. While the ice cream doesn't taste quite as I remember it was still very good and after eating a large shake I certainly didn't want anything else to eat for the rest of the evening.
Sitting outside, eating the ice cream, I did see the staff coming out and taking orders from people sat in the drive through - not a service I have seen anywhere else.
Not sure when I'll get back, if ever, to sample this again but it was definitely worth the trip. Only thing I found somewhat disappointing was the lack of being able to connect to wi-fi there and 'check-in'.

Whitey's Ice Cream

Reviewed By Heidi H - Bettendorf, Iowa

If you haven't tried Whitey's you are missing out. So many flavors to choose from, seasonal flavors too. The staff is always so friendly and fast. People here in Iowa love their Whitey's. This place is busy whether it's hot, cold, raining or freezing cold. You won't be disappointed.

If you're ever in the area this is a must stop if you like ice cream. Family owned and operated business from the old days. We even take a few home on dry ice when we are visiting the area!

Lemon Grass

Reviewed By Mike S - Davenport, Iowa

We decided to try Lemon Grass for the first time today. Had some idea what to expect but it exceeded our expectations! The restaurant is kind of quaint, not really big. The menu is well planned and offers really good selections for everyone. I had the Tangerine Chicken and my wife had a noodle soup. Both excellent and unique. The waitresses were really efficient and helpful. If you are in downtown Moline and want somewhere unique, do visit this restaurant.

Jimmy's Pancake House

Reviewed By 332Rich - Aurora, Illinois

We had to wait for about 10 minutes for a table, it was busy. Monday was -30 below wind chill. Suzie brought me Hot Tea w/Honey & Lemon, that did the trick! My partner had the Denver Omelet with a side of 2 Pancakes and I had Sausage, Eggs, Toast & Hash browns, with more Tea. We had our food in less than 10 minutes. The food was great and our waitress Suzie, was very attentive. We'll be back here in a heartbeat.

Frank's Pizzeria

Reviewed By Vickie S - Andover, Illinois, United States

Frank's Pizza is a standard in the Quad Cities. All other pizza joints style themselves after Frank's. I've been going there since high school and my kids were raised on Frank's. They need no gimmicks like coupons or night specials. They are what they are and when we leave town for any period of time the first place we come to when we get back home is Frank's. When our sons come home for a visit Frank's is the first place we go to and also Frank's is our place to head to for family get togethers. If we go visit our son in Virginia we take him some Frank's. That pretty much says it all. Just can't beat Frank's.

Went on July 3, had a breakfast bowl that was kind of dry and a chicken caprise sandwich that was a basic chicken sandwich. The beer wasn't very cold, should turn down that cooler a couple degrees.

Coffee Hound

Reviewed By GAB51 - Venice, Florida

I just love this place! Since they first opened they are always about customer satisfaction! I have never encountered a grouchy barista nor a bad coffee. They have creative drinks and yummy things to munch on, check their board for the daily specials and new stuff. They have just moved to a new location. I've not been there yet but the photos look fabulous! This is a local business that I want to support and reward for their continuing excellent service! These types of places cannot stay in business without our support!

Lagomarcino’s Confectionery

Lagomarcino's is a place steeped in family tradition. Sometimes, during the busy lunch hour as you're sitting in one of the gorgeous, handcrafted mahogany booths, you will start to feel a nostalgic calm, a satisfying wistfulness. You will begin to notice pleasant memories drifting quietly past your table, sweet memories smelling faintly of chocolate.
