Asheville's Best Millkshake

Where is it? The Biltmore Dairy Bar was closed on my last visit, Boo Hoo. Many happy memories gone for good. I need a new place.

Responding to your question is impossible without trying every possible place for a milkshake in Asheville. I doubt if anyone has done that.

Curious, perhaps the original poster would like suggestions for places serving good milkshakes and is being literal. But hey, that's just a thought. And do you know where the best place is to get a chill pill? I suggest you head on over there.

Literally, figuratively, or any other way, the best shake in town is the Diner at Woolworth Walk on Haywood Street downtown. A close second is The Hop on Merrimon Ave (US 25). The Hop is open seven days a week, the Diner at W.W. is closed on Tuesdays.

Thanks for the recommendations, gophereverette. Have you tried Ultimate Ice Cream on Tunnel Road? What's your opinion?

I've been to ultimate for ice cream a couple times, bit not in the past two years. I haven't had their milk shakes, but if they are better than Woolworth Walk, I'm gonna gain about 50 pounds this summer!

I just came back from Asheville, and can attest that the the reports of the demise of the Biltmore Ice Cream Parlor are premature. I had a chocolate milkshake ($4.75) and can confidently, without hesitation or qualification, report that it was delicious.

Thanks, Jed. After finding it closed, I didn't go back to inquire if it had reopened.

Jed's link is to the ice cream parlor that is actually on the Biltmore estate. Is that the same one you were thinking of cmcfong? Unless you have a season pass, that would be an awfully expensive milkshake, by the time you pay to get into the estate!

Well, bless my soul, Betsy, I didn't follow the link assuming Jed had tested the old Biltmore Dairy Bar which used to be in the building where TGIF is located near the front gate to the Estate. You are right, that would be one expensive milkshake......

You are forgiven if you can tell me where the best milkshake is on the North Island of New Zealand.

I will report back on that after my next trip to NZ, in my next life. Stay tuned.
