The landmark Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant in Dania Beach, opened by Monroe Udell in 1956, still makes each of its 60-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. Expect super-sized scoops, waffles and ice cream, frosted floats, giant shakes, parfaits, and banana splits. 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 Burger,” which boasts three half-pound beef patties, each topped with a different kind of cheese. New Normal: Drive up, order your ice cream at the window, and tote your frozen treat to the beach, just a mile or so down the road.
