Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor Restaurant

Christina Mendenhall
Known for "the kitchen sink," the Holy Grail of sundaes in plumbing fixtures, this landmark of an ice cream parlor still makes its ice cream by hand, batch by slowly mixed batch. More than 60 flavors are available every day, and the scoops here are as big as oven mitts. Don't let that deter you from exploring the menu, though. The food items that come out of the Dania Beach "country kitchen" are all homemade and authentic, despite drawing from all regions of the culinary map: The Buffalo wings are zesty, barbecue beef is lean and tangy, the Rueben boasts tender corned beef on marbled rye bread, and even the clam roll has succulent, freshly battered shellfish tucked inside.
