They are located right on Main Street in Boonville, MO
When you walk in their door you may wonder why would I want ice-cream in the middle of winter but wait! This place is so much more than ice-cream!
Owners, Carrie Lyn and Ret Thomas, lived in Las Vegas. Carrie Lyn would get an idea of opening an ice cream parlor near Henderson, Las Vegas. (Carrie Lyn's mom owned an ice cream parlor in California called Nancy Lou's until she passed away at the young age of 56) Carrie Lyn's husband, Ret, had a good friend that lived in Boonville, MO and they came back to visit over Thanksgiving. You ready for the best part.... they loved the small town feel so much they packed up everything including their now 15 year old daughter, Haylee, and moved from wild and crazy Las Vegas to little ol' Boonville, MO! In March 2009 they opened "Carrie Lyn's Ice Cream Parlor" starting out with Blue Bunny ice cream and about 5 samich's. Carrie Lyn and Ret began looking for locally owned items for their business and soon changed their ice-cream over to Central Dairy. They also added a few more samich's to their menu.
This is my favorite samich... Chicken Salad on Ciabatta... OMG!
The potato salad is awesome too!
Just look at how fresh everything looks! The bread is prepared so that it is soft and warm and the meats are also always fresh and a great quality. They use shredded lettuce and thin sliced tomatoes which makes the samich perfect!They love avocado and they fix it in a way that everyone loves it and they are happy to add it to any samich...
Oh and for dessert you can have ice-cream!
In fact, they have 16 Central Dairy flavors to choose from!
If you wan to try their "Bellyache" ice-cream challenge just ask them!
So I promise it's totally worth the drive to Boonville, MO for a great samich!
Make sure you tell Carrie Lyn and Ret that I sent you!
