Zesto's is great ice cream wise. I got the Oreo attic blast, it was thick, creamy, and a ton of Oreos. The staff was friendly, but the area this particular one is located is a little sketchy. Be safe, and enjoy the ice cream!

The location visited was the one near the Atlanta Farmer's Market. I picked up food from the drive-thru window and got what I ordered in a timely manner. Everything seems very freshly cooked and will make you wish you could go there at least once a week. I had an excellent chili slaw foot long hotdog. My husband adores their... More

The prices were very nice and the food was ok. The Banana split artic swirl was not what was displayed but tasted ok. The girl at the front was my real complaint. Me: "How are you?" Her: nothing. No response, no what would you like? She literally stood there and waited for me to speak. Long haired, dark skinned and... More

This is the second landmark type restaurant that I have wasted my money at. I tried this restaurant based on the reviews and the history. Whatever it had in the past needs to be brought to the present. I order a double decker burger and fries. The burger was not fresh. It looked like and tasted like something that was... More

Great place for burgers, fries and ice cream. Yummy! They have been in business for many years which tells you that the food is good. I will certainly go back there when in the area.

Not many places still use the ice cream makers this place does. The best banana split in a cup with nuts are awesome. You will lose your mind thinking about how fresh the ice cream tastes. The cost is very minimal you can get a huge ice cream cone for only 2 dollars. The ice cream floats will take you... More

Each Zesto's has a few different items on the menu. Love this one no matter what I'm in the mood for I can get it fast and inexpensive. I can feed the whole family with no problem. From footlong hotdogs to wings. This is also a great place to people watch while having a milkshake.

I really like this place. I love the foot long hotdog, and especially the Banana milkshakes. Also, their order of nachos is HUGE, more than one person can eat. I like this place because it never takes a long time to get in and out. The drive-thru may be a little slow at times especially at on the weekends at... More

We were looking for a quick meal and Zesto did not disappoint. The menu items included typical fast food but many items you don't expect to see, such as a patty melt. The sandwiches are prepared to order and served hot. We were there during their 65th anniversary celebration and received a free ice cream cone, the dipped cone was... More

Well established small local chain delivers excellent soft serve ice cream any way you want it (chocolate dipped cones, banana splits, etc.). Yes, they have burgers and all that but they shine on the ice cream. My favorite is a vanilla malt as they still use the old fashioned malt power (ask them to add extra). All ice cream items...
