Despite THE Texas heat, new venture 210 Ice Cream isn’t melting away.

Owner Alonso Cardona, originally from Piedras Negras, Mexico, is on a roll.

The bright, neon-colored snack stop at 747 Isom Road, which debuted in April, is the third outing for Cardona’s budding company.

A fourth spot opened on Evers Road in July.

Miriam Ortega, a Clark High School graduate and native of Sinaloa, Mexico, manages the Isom Road locale, just west of U.S. 281 North.

Ortega is enrolled in the culinary-arts program at St. Philip’s College.

Though the shop’s name suggests an ice-cream parlor, its products reflect dishes traditionally found at a fruiteria.

While ice cream is available, other offerings include Frito pie, hot dogs, nachos, Tostitos, cheese-covered Takis Fuego, funnel cakes, banana splits, waffles, cheesecake and brownies.

Asked for a popular item, Ortega cited The Mangodilly, made with shaved ice, pickles, gummy worms, sour belts, chamoy, Lucas spice and lime.

Hours are noon to 10 p.m. daily.
