Mello Ice Cream

Pulling into the Mars Drive-in for a Lime Rickey. Ordering up a burger from the car hop at the A&W on Blackstone. Checking out the action at Bob's Big Boy. Your favorite grilled cheese sandwich at the Woolworths Counter. Don't forget loading up at Perry Boys Smorgy. What eats do you miss?

Mello Ice Cream

Does anyone remember the Mello ice cream shop at the south side of Tulare Street at what is now the Freeway 41 southbound on ramp? The counter clerk would sometimes sell us four scoops for a dime! This was in the early '50's.

wow, that sure rings a bell. I am 59 now but I bet I went there. I wish there were more pictures of the places we remember. I feel like I am going down memory lane with this site. Fun!

I WAS A COOK AT ONE OF THE ICE CREAM STORE DRIVE-INS AT FRESNO & A STREETS (SNAX DRIVE IN). MELL-O ICE CREAM WAS OWNED AND OPERATED BY DON JENSEN AND THE MAIN STORE WAS ON BUTLER AVENUE. OUR BEST SELLER AT THE DRIVE IN WAS A SNAX BURGER WITH
BEATLE-NUT ICE CREAM THAT WAS MADE SPECIFICALLY IN RESPONSE TO THE BRITISH MUSIC INVASION BY THE BEATLES IN 1964. GREAT FOOD,
GREAT ICE CREAM, BETTER TIMES FOR SURE.
