Joe's Italian Ice
Garden Grove, CA 92844
OC Weekly's Description
A Pennsylvania-based chain, Joe's Italian Ice has just one West Coast location, this one in Garden Grove, from which the company has hawked its namesake product to the heated hoi polloi for years. (They also offer such soda-shop standards as ice cream cones, sundaes and root beer floats.) You can order the Italian ice as is, but it's infinitely better as a Joe Latti: your choice of Italian ice now crowned with a Babel-esque tower of velvety vanilla ice cream, each frosty product retaining its charm until uniting inside your mouth to create the most pleasant brain freeze of your life.
Tips from foursquare
Ask for samples of flavors if you're unsure what you want.
A cup of Italian ice, with flavors that spread as quickly as the ice melts, a cone of soft-serve ice cream, or the velvety orange cream, tasting of Orange Bang! fake-citrus glory? You can't go wrong!
If you get the girl who works here with the tip jar of her two kids, I'm sorry, she makes the worst Joe lattis :/
get the joe latti! it is delicious!
try piña colada/mango tango Italian ice mix. you will LOVE it!
