Ice cream was good. I'm a diabetic and had no sugar added ice cream. I would recommend this ice cream parlor. ENJOY :)

Being from Texas, we love Blue Bell as much as the next guy. However, when you go to a small town ice cream parlor you hope for something more local and less commercial. Big Dipper serves Blue Bell ice cream and while it was good (as is Blue Bell always) it is just store bought ice cream. We were planning... More

Very friendly staff with a smile. The poor girl was dealing with an absolute idiot in front of us, and she just smiled through it all and kept apologizing to us after that customer left, even though it was not her fault.

We stopped in here for dessert and a fresh-squeezed lemonade, which was perfect. It is a quaint little country store type atmosphere.

When traveling with grand kids, ice cream is a must. Great customer service and reasonable prices. Very generous scoops. The kids were happy and they had my fav Blue Bell flavor. The weather turned bad when we came in so we ended up sitting inside for awhile while a major thunderstorm passed by. The staff were fine with our six... More

My husband and I were so happy to see this ice cream shop open after 10pm. They serve a variety of Blue Bell ice cream, shakes, and other frozen goodies. The servings were nice and large. Would go back.
