My fall favorite!

If you love pumpkin... the pumpkin pie concrete is wonderful! With bits of pie crust mixed throughout, its like eating a piece of homemade pumpkin pie! The caramel apples are also delicious!

I have had good custard at this business, and I have enjoyed the summer bands that play in the parking lot there. Access is nice and central and easy to get to from several different local cities. However, I will not be going back. I have heard from the student population that this owner does not "share" the tips ($$)... More

we live close by, so we can stop by anytime we want, lucky and dangerous all at once, lol! They always have big crowds during the summer when they have music. The custard is awesome and the free entertainment is a bonus.

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) and some "older cars" parked there to... 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!
