One of teh Best Hot Dog places, plus you get the best Custard Desert as well

Was in the area and wanted a great hot dog, so I checked Tripadvisor and found that people raved about this place. We ordered one each of the 4 different hot dogs and we split them so we could each sample them. Everyone of them were excellent, Loved each one. I did fall in love with their Chicago... read more

This is a great place to eat. The frozen custard is heavenly. The butter pecan is my favorite. The hot dogs are the best in Little Rock. A great place for the family.

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 with balance of salty nuts on... 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
