A funny thing happened on our way back from Madison Square Eats yesterday. We ran across an old, beat-up truck serving delicious frozen lemonade.
The truck is called Del’s NYC, and after a little research (thanks Gothamist), we found out these guys are HUGE in Rhode Island. According to the sign, they have been “Serving happiness in a cup since 1948″ and are currently located in Newport, RI.
On the truck was a sign called The Story, which recounts how the recipe was invented in Naples, Italy in 1840 by the current owner’s great grandfather.
We normally prefer the flavor of watermelon over lemon, but when Del’s logo is a frosted lemon, we got the hint and ordered a small frozen lemonade for $3.50. A medium is $4.25 and large is $5.00.
