ARLINGTON – When you think of a cone, you figure it’ll be filled with ice cream, right? Well, one place in South Arlington wants you to think different. Think epic. It’s Epic Cones.
"We actually take pizzas, burgers, hot wings, brisket - everything we can think of - to put inside of a cone,” owner Chris Martinez said. “Then we bake it. We make the cones here from scratch, and we have our own patented pending recipe."
"We started out with about 10 different menu items, and then we expanded from there,” Martinez said.
From pepperoni pizza to cheeseburgers, to hot wings, to pesto chicken. Mmmmm! You can enjoy all your favorites in one hand.
And chew on this, Epic Cones is serving up dessert cones too!
"We made our own vanilla sugar cone that we put that we put in cobblers and cheesecake and mousse cakes and what have you,” Martinez said.
Now if you’re wondering how this family-owned spot got its name, well, you can thank the owner’s 8-year-old son Blade for that.
"I was having an epic day and then I had ice cream and I looked at the cone,” Blade Martinez said. “I said, 'How bout' we make a place named Epic Cones?'"
Good thinking, kiddo!
Epic Cones also delivers and caters events. So there’s no excuse not to try one of these babies out.
Yep, safe to say these cones deserve an Epic thumbs up!
