The best

I happen to hear of this place from family who live in the area. The frozen custard was truly "the best" I've ever tasted. I had a marshmallow Sunday with chocolate custard and praline....it was fabulous and worth the wait in line and every calorie. There was a band playing last night (Sunday... read more

Bobby's is an institution in Maryville. They are a good draw from teh surrounding communities and even have folks from 60+ miles away stopping by as they pass by 270 and 159. I greatly enjoy their turtle custard.

If having the best custard around wasn't good enough, come on the weekend nights for some entertainment. They usually have a local band playing. If you come for the music, bring your own lawn chair or you might not find a seat.

Such a yummy place! It has great vibs and a great ice cream menu. Plus, there are lots of places to sit outside. A real bonus is during the summer, when on Saturday and Sunday nights there are live bands that play. It's free, too. Vintage car cruises are common, too. Very family-oriented. Bring you lawn chair.

BEST custard east of the Mississippi River. Service fast & friendly. Accepts credit cards. Not as many specialty treats as others still a good selection. I recommend Bobby's Turtle delicious!

Having traveled around the US and sampled various frozen confections looking for something better, it's apparent that there is no better frozen custard than that available right here in Maryville, IL. Bobby's Frozen Custard is a true destination in Southwestern Illinois, with a broad mix of entertainment during summer weekends to entertain you while you enjoy their unique specialties. Yes,...

You can't drive through Maryville without stopping in for a little custard. This place has been around for years and isn't going anywhere. People drive from all over the area for this stuff. It is the Ted Drewes of IL. A little pricey, but oh so good. They often have car shows and live music as well! -No indoor seating.... More
