Feeling nostalgic?

Jet over to Golden Years Ice Cream Parlor and Diner on HWY 231/431 right at the border of Meridianville and Hazel Green.

They’re making classics like burgers, dogs, and malts in a fun and nifty space

Enjoy an authentic Chicago dog with all the fixings or a melty smoked ham and provolone sandwich with comforting broccoli cheddar soup. And how can you not finish it off with the perfect banana split? We made ours fun and colorful with ice cream flavors like ‘Superman’ and ‘Birthday Cake’!

But there are plenty of options with 36 flavors to chose from and an ice cream happy hour during the week from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.!

The ’80s are invited too! They have plenty of vintage arcade games and board games to play.

They also have cruise-ins with some of the coolest vintage cars.

Let the past come to you as they cruise around in their food truck!
