Summer officially starts this weekend, and you’ll be able to celebrate with a cooling cone from Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats. The vintage-themed food truck from Brandon Byrd opens a brick-and-mortar shop on Saturday at National Harbor. 

We recently sampled the fresh-made vanilla custard at Truckeroo, and it’s well worth the splurge. Purists can get the rich, creamy stuff in a house-made waffle cone, swirled into a concrete with cookies and caramel, or blended into a shake. Byrd sources Sprecher’s Root Beer from Wisconsin for floats, and will have ten other sodas on tap in flavors such as cherry, blueberry, and orange. You’ll also find more elaborate desserts like the Big Red doughnut sandwich—a red velvet doughnut topped with frozen custard and chocolate sauce. 

Opening day brings a number of specials, including a $5 root beer float happy hour and maple-bacon doughnut sandwiches. Gigi, the vintage truck, will be on hand playing oldies from Chuck Berry and the Supremes.
