Originally called “Superman on Rt 66,” they had to change their name to SuperTam after pressure from the copyright owners. But not much else has changed. The parlor still serves up delicious desserts, like the “Kryptonite Delight” and red, blue, and yellow Superman ice cream, along with standard cones, shakes, and sundaes. And it still is packed to the brim with items depicting the “Man of Steel.” So you can get your “licks” on Route 66 and admire a collection of action figures, artwork, record players, stamps, watches, and other novelties.
