Thank goodness for trip advisor...

So glad we checked trip advisor and found this quaint, local custard shop. We had BBQ for dinner so didn't try the dogs, even though the selections looked great. As tempting as a large sundae was, they offer it them in Jr sizes and that was just right. Creamy custard at the right temperature... read more

Ice cream/custard was very good. Lots of choices of stuff to add in. They also have snacks like hot dogs. They only accept cash and checks but no debit or credit cards which can be a hassle. Overall it as great and will definitely be going back.

Good ice cream! Delicious hot dogs. Chili was a bit generic, but not bad! Very cool place! Give it a shot! CASH only! We had to head to a bank, lol

This place is amazing! You can't get these flavor of concretes anywhere else. Whoopie pie, birthday cake, sugar cookie, rice krispie treat, the list of fun and tasty flavors goes on and on. This is not your ordinary ice cream place, it's extraordinary and a must try! Always great service too, really nice people!

Kind of pricey for hot dogs, but the atmosphere makes up for it! Great place and friendly staff. The concretes are out of this world amazing!

Monday May 19 @ 7 pm. Of the 4 of us 1 ordered a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream. The woman taking our order said that they didn't have whipped cream. "Our custard is too good to put whipped cream on it." It's not.

If you're planning a special occasion (or just like to have an ice cream cake in the freezer) then this is the best ice cream cake you can get! Their custard is perfectly rich and creamy!

This is a terrific little local drive-thru/walk-up spot in NLR. It's family-owned and operated. Frozen custard comes in a number of different ways - shakes, concretes, floats, cones, sundaes, etc. I personally love the Brown Cow - a blended root beer float. In the past year or so, they've expanded to include a great selection of specialty pure beef hot... More

The ice cream (well its frozen custard I think) is absolutley wonderful. I ordered a cheesecake concrete and it was very much worth the price. It is a tad bit pricey for the ice cream but this is not going to stop me from going again. They also have other things on the menu, such as hot dogs, that are... More

This place is very cool! You pull up and all the different flavors of ice cream and concoctions that they have come up with are painted around the entire building. They have some really good hot dogs there as well.
