We stopped by after the beach, and it's a perfect addition to a beach community. They have plenty of flavor variety for both cookies and ice cream, so you can expect to find something to your liking.

The cookies are warm and gooey with ice cream on top. It is a great dessert for sharing. Fun summer place for a little dessert!

It was hot and we had just left the beach. This place was amazing with so many flavors and ice cream combinations to choose from. It was hard to choose, but I think I had some caramel banana concoction on top of a chocolate chip cookie. My mouth is watering just thinking about it, I will go back to the... More

We stopped here for an afternoon snack and it didn't disappoint. The cookies were warm and fabulous. The ice cream was amazing. The two folks operating the place were super sweet and very helpful. The only problem we had was that there were SO many choices that it was hard to decide which ones to try. We loved it!!

Nice truck eatery. The cookie was warm and had several choices. There are picnic tables so you can enjoy under a little shade when it is hot.

First things first. Whatever this thing is, it's delicious. With that out of the way, let's discuss branding. Is this thing a cookie??? It's more like a cookie-pizza-thing, or a flattened muffin, or maybe a cookie-dough brownie, or possibly ... well nevermind. It's too thick for a cookie, and it doesn't really taste like a cookie. It tastes better than... More

This is a great dessert that won't break the bank! The cookie was moist, the ice cream delicious (Hershey's), and the topping the perfect touch to a delicious treat. The lady taking care of our order was very friendly and it was a great afternoon snack. Make sure you stop by if you're in the area!

You pick a cookie, ice cream and topping. All are very good and allows you to make you own combo. It looks like a shack, but s worth a stop.

We've been coming to Chincoteague for a few years now, and had yet to try BYOC until this last visit. You can't beat an I've cream sundae that has a huge, warm cookie as it's base! We will be back for sure!
