My husband and I wanted ice cream, and this place was open. We are so glad we stopped!!! The waffle cone dipped in chocolate was delicious, and my husband was so glad he could order a malt!!!! The lady working was so friendly, she even offered me a bowl when I broke my cone. We are going to go back... More

It is very good ice cream, but it's not hard frozen. Will melt quickly in the heat if you take it outside.

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. Really enjoyed our experience. Please have cash ready. If unsure, please see the sign that says "CASH ONLY"... More

We stopped in here for dessert and a fresh-squeezed lemonade, which was perfect. It is a quaint little country store type atmosphere. Very friendly folks and they only take cash but they have an ATM in the corner so that is no trouble at all. The ice cream was very good and the place is really clean. There were very... More

Great selection of flavors. Friendly employees. Only drawback is it doesn't accept credit or debit cards. Does have an ATM on site though.

I'm not sure how you screw up a malt but they did. It was so watery and thin you could drink it like a glass of tea…..should be THICK!

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
