This was our first visit to a Better Scoop. We try not to indulge in a big dessert every evening but this was worth every bite! When we first walked in there was already a line (a good sign!) There were several different flavor combinations to choose, from your basic vanilla, chocolate chip, etc to mouth watering Cappuccino Kahlua, Pralines... More

The ice cream here is incredible, boasting the most butter fat I've ever found. We sometimes have this for dinner, it's that good. My son loves the Superman, causing a blue face and teeth, I love pretty much anything else. The service is excellent, prices more than reasonable, and servings generous. A "small" is two huge scoops. My parents live... More

We are visiting the Englewood area for the second year in a row and couldn't wait to get back to this ice cream shop.

The quality, freshness and tastiness (both cones... More

You know an ice cream place is good when it's packed in January. I had the Panda bear, gator tracks, and cappuccino kahlua. All three were unique flavors and I'd eagerly have them again. This is a family friendly place and if you bring your own push pin you can even mark where you came from on their US or... More

Well worth the wait on a warm night, and even when it's 50 out. The selection of favors makes even a chocolate lover look twice. Excellent service, and a local business.

Everything ordered is of good quality and quantity. Closing time is 9:00, so plan accordingly. Super for an after early dinner treat.

This place has some of the best ice cream I've ever had, and the people are extremely friendly.. They treat customers like old friends. I especially enjoyed the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
