Opened by Monroe Udell in 1956, Dania Beach landmark Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant still makes each of its 45-plus flavors of ice cream by hand. Today the old-fashioned ice cream parlor boasts not only one of the largest — and best — ice cream selections in the area, but also one of the nation's largest collections of American memorabilia. Jaxson's also has a toy and candy store. Be aware that Jaxson's is perhaps most famous for its "Kitchen Sink" sundae, available for parties of four or more: The restaurant's professional soda jerks will unleash their imagination for a concoction that offers a bit of everything but, well, you know. If you're hungry for more than ice cream, Jaxson's menu offers dozens of dishes from its country kitchen. From wings to clam rolls, they're all homemade and authentic despite drawing from all regions of the culinary map. Vegans can order an Impossible burger, but meat eaters will need all hands on deck for the "Titanic Triple Burger," which boasts three half-pound beef patties, each topped with a different kind of cheese. If you can't handle that hand-held feast, you could always cram your face with Jaxson's signature "Famous Bigger, Better Half-Pound Burger."
