Mint Chocolate Chip Milkshake at Gott's Roadside

Brownie, Pie, and Straight-Up Milkshakes at Chile Pies & Ice Cream
But what good is trying a pie milkshake without sampling a plain one? We tried a straight-up shake made with lemon cookie ice cream ($6). It was less creamy, less intense, but equally delicious—the quality of the ice cream really came through here, and we liked that this was a shake one could actually finish by oneself. But we didn't stop there—they also offer brownie shakes. We combined mint confetti ice cream with a fudgy, chewy brownie, and the result was excellent. Hunks of dense, chocolately brownie paired perfectly with the mint ice cream—this is a shake we shouldn't want to finish alone, but probably would.
We couldn't pick our favorite of the three—all are excellent options, ranging from the deliciously drinkable to the dangerously decadent.
