The young girls running the ice-cream windows do not know how to make and have not been informed that they are making the sundies served to customers backwards....Very upside down icecream business. I've been in 3 times to order before writing this review. All three times wrong preparation...The person that taught the servers to make sundies soon.. I will not go again to take a chance. Terrible
