The sno-cones at Jerry's Sno-Cones & Car Wash 

If it's hot when you visit Jerry's Sno-Cones & Car Wash, a sun-bleached former gas station on the corner of Wells Station and Reed, be prepared to stand in a long, slow-moving line, where you will sweat and curse under your breath and maybe even cry a little. But sno-cone aficionados would be wise to take up their high-octane sunscreen and deal, because the cool payoff is well worth risking a touch of sunstroke. Jerry's offers hundreds of combinations, from cinnamon-flavored concoctions named in honor of Jerry Lee Lewis to divine "blue coconut," wickedly sweet "wedding cake," and everything combos for sweltering nabobs who can't make up their mind. The syrup is applied liberally, turning fluffy, shaved-ice snowflakes into a messy, slushy, tooth-aching pleasure for the overheated hedonist who's not afraid to slurp. The Jerry's crew will even mix its sno-cream with its soft-serve ice cream, if you're kid enough to take it. -- Chris Davis
