Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour, Restaurant and Country Store in Dania Beach, Florida

Jaxson's - Dania Beach, Florida

Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour, Restaurant and Country Store has been around for over 50 years. I’ve come by here quite a few times to wait in line outside for the Ice Cream, which is homemade and great by the way.

Once you step foot inside you almost feel as if nothing has changed since its opening. The first thing to your right is a gigantic selection of candies, in particular some you probably haven’t seen in years.

I ate here 2 twice within the last couple of weeks and each time I was seated in a different part of the restaurant (there are 2 rooms). The first is mostly long tables that can be shared by different groups of folks and the 2nd is all individual tables. One of the first things I was asked by the server on both occasions was whether I’d like some popcorn while I waited for my food. The first time I passed on it but on the following occasion I figured I might as well.

I was with Chunktronics and convinced him to come with me to Jaxson’s by telling him I had only tried their Ice Cream. He was in amazement at the place and we both were looking over the menu when the waitress came up to us. And then it happened…..I ordered a Coke. I was told “We only serve a homemade Cola.” I was intrigued so I said “Yes”. One of the best “Yeses” of my life. The sip was so delicious that I didn’t want it to end. Fred took one sip and didn’t want to give back my cup. It was settled. He needed his own cup and I had a new obsession.

In the midst of our Cola battle my Patty Melt arrived. I also have a well documented obsession with Patty Melts. The dude I was served fit right in with his Marble Rye Bread. It was nice, juicy and yes, delicious.

Right before getting up to leave we decided to each order a Shake. We take a couple of sips and take it to go along with a to go cup of the Cola (duh!).

On my second visit I was with my wife Marcela. I couldn’t stop talking to her about how great the Cola was, so to teach me a lesson she ordered the Pink Lemonade. I ordered a Cola and kept it out of her reach (even though she didn’t want it). I decided on some Potato Pancakes to start with. There was nothing really special here but that didn’t stop me from eating them all out of spite.

Marcela orders the Patty Melt while I set my eyes on this ridiculously sized 1 pound Hot Dog called the Artillery Dog. It’s served with some Relishes and Chopped Onions on the side. I went straight Mustard on this mutha.

Marcela thought I was in way over my head because I didn’t finish it. I don’t know what I was thinking but in the end it worked out. The Dog was even better later when I finished it while watching Survivor at home.

Days later I was having some hot flashes about that Hot Dog. And what about Jaxson’s Cola you ask? I’m still thinking about the Cola with some thoughts of the Patty Melt peppered in.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jaxson's! I went there for the first time 3 years ago after my BF balked at me revelation that I had not ever been (I too am a Bad Broward native that took too long to find this place).

    The shakes are awesome, the cola is killer and if you have a sweet tooth for Ice cream sundae type concoctions, the Two In A Blanket is epic on levels never before experienced. Two scoops of ice cream on 2 slabs of pound cake with marshmallow fluff and fudge.

    Deliciousness has a name, it's Jaxson's.
