I remember the first time someone mentioned A.C.’s Icees to me and I admitted I had never hit him up. I didn’t get an “I can’t believe you haven’t had it” face but more like an “I feel sorry for you face”. But after having A.C.’s, it left me with a “where have you been all my life” kinda look right before I finished one of his lemonades so fast it left me with brain freeze.
A.C.’s Icees has been around since 1978 at Kennedy Park (2600 South Bayshore Drive) in Coconut Grove. You can find him there from 11AM – 6PM every day. He has the first mobile concession permit by the city of Miami and in 2008 to celebrate his 30 years of service to the community the City of Miami installed a stone seat monument with a plaque. You can find it right in front of where his truck is normally parked.
A.C.’s Icees has 3 flavors: Frosted Lemonade, Cherry, and Piña Colada & 3 sizes: Small (12 oz), Medium (16 oz), and Large (24 oz). I’ll usually go straight for the Lemonade and Medium size. During the summer, unless you’re a quick slurper that dude is gonna melt. What am I talking about…the heat is always here, get the Large. This is the smoothest and most flavorful Lemonade you will ever have. Nothing compares.
If you happen to be hungry I’d suggest you go for one of his dogs (Sabrett’s) with the NY style onions too. They’re the perfect thing to wash down with a cold drink on a warm Miami afternoon. But you should already know that since you should have already been here. Hmmmmm….?
