Charlie's Ice Cream Social hearkens back to a bygone era, when entire families would gather around the radio with their frozen treats and when the Rocky Mountains were still freshly planted pebbles. The aesthetic of 1940s America pervades the throwback parlor: inside, black-and-white portraits hang above red stools and countertops, and outside, a chalkboard colorfully broadcasts daily specials and staff picks. Visitors seeking sweet reprieve step up to a sprawling white menu, where they'll devise their own glacial creations with many flavors of syrups and ice cream that serve as the landing pad for more than 40 different toppings. Custom Twister shakes swirl together ice cream, candies, and cookies into pucker-inducing potions.
The chefs at Spanky's Roadhouse perform culinary gymnastics, flipping patties, tossing salads, shaking shakes, and teaching wings how to soar with flavor. Adventurous eaters can build their own burger out of beef ($8.95), buffalo ($10.95), or grilled chicken breast ($8.95), garnishing their meat choice with multifarious toppings ($0.75 each). Or, pad your uninsulated belly cabin with one of 12 signature burgers, such as the Spanky burger, which is assembled with jalapeno-jack cheese, bacon, guacamole, and onions sizzled to a saliva-worthy crisp ($9.95). The Breakfast burger keeps lonely buns company with bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg, and the Fat burger is crowned with a golden, beer-battered onion ring and slathered in barbecue sauce, bacon, and blue cheese. After dousing a burning burger desire before it spreads to nearby stomachs, guests can dig into one of three sliders, such as the piquant barbecue pulled pork ($7.95) or a dozen Roadhouse wings, which come in six flavors, including Chinese Hot, Atomic, and honey barbecue ($8.95).

It's the grownup version of an ice-cream cake, basically. A molded ice-cream dessert that originated in Victorian-era France, the ice-cream bombe consists of three layers of hardened ice cream that are set using an authentic copper mold from the '60s. Once it's frozen, it flies from the mold like a beautiful ice-cream butterfly and is sliced, cake-style, then topped with nuts and sauce.
