Oh, the 100-plus degree days  in Garland, Sachse and Rowlett, Texas! These towns also happen to be the home of Barrett Motors, your premier buy-here pay-here dealerships in the Dallas area.

Like you, we’re hot, sweaty and thirsty pretty much all day and into the night. What to do?

In the same way that people seek out the best dealerships and auto service centers (such as Barrett Motors) they seek out the best ice cream and frozen yogurt places to get sweet relief from the heat.

The best of the best, in our humble opinion:

Snowflake Cafe in Richardson — The ice cream is rolled, the portions are large and you can put on plenty of toppings. The staff is as sweet as the ice cream itself. There is plenty of room to take your entire family. 312 N Greenville Ave.

The Sweet House in Rowlett — A family-friendly place with board games to play while you eat homemade ice creams. Make an ice cream float by adding a root beer or other soda from their large selection. 7001 Rowlett Rd #200.

Yogurtland in Garland — You can’t go wrong with this open-until-11pm shoppe with a wide range of flavors and toppings. They have a friendly staff and a clean store. Can’t really ask for anything more. 4170 Lavon Dr #176.

Braum’s Ice Cream & Burger Restaurant in Garland — Braum’s is a Texas staple for ice cream. A must-try is one of their fabulous, old-fashioned hand-dipped milkshakes with a menu of more than 30 flavors. 1815 Northwest Hwy.

Steel City Pops in Garland — Are you a popsicle person? Well, Steel City Pops is for you. The flavors change daily and range from fruity to milky. Each has great chunks of fruit in delectable mouthfuls. 337 Coneflower Dr.

Honey Dee’s in North Dallas — The popular cooling treat is their water ice. The shaved ice is thin like Italian ice and can be mixed with soft serve ice cream for a Heaven-in-your-mouth treat. 12300 Inwood Rd #200

La Real Michoacana in Garland — For the international palate, this shop serves Mexican gelato, ice cream and frozen yogurt. Great for something different; tasty and cooling. 3161 Broadway Blvd Suite 25.

Yumilicious in Uptown Dallas — Refreshing frozen yogurt and plenty of toppings to satisfy one on a hot Dallas night can be found here. 3800 McKinney Ave #160.

Paleteria La Super in Garland — Homemade Mexican delights to cool and refresh. Simply delish! 3031 S 1st St.

Lake Highlands Creamery in Lake Highlands — Eclectic and delightful flavors. Be prepared to take ice cream bars and pints home with you. 9660 Audelia Rd #121, Dallas.
