Get your monkey sundaes here

Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason. - Jerry Seinfeld

Gotta disagree with Jerry on this one. Usually the road less traveled has the most interesting turns and things to see along the way. Highway 47 in Illinois passes through towns most people have never heard of – Morris, Yorkville, Elburn, Hampshire, Woodstock, Hebron. But something almost every one of these towns has in common is a mom-and-pop non-franchise ice cream joint on the main drag.

Huntley, Illinois is no exception, and at the Dairy Mart you can quickly pull of the road for hamburgers, pizza puffs and hotdogs and all manner of soft-serve ice cream creations. A personal favorite is the monkey sundae – basically a hot fudge sundae with bananas. Good stuff at low prices. Can’t beat it.
