I ate so much, I was ashamed.

BYOC is awesome if you want to pig out on sweets. I come here every time I visit Chincoteague. I recommend that you show up with a huge appetite. If you do not want to (maybe) explode after you stuff your face with cookies, ice cream, and other excellent toppings, they also serve ice cream cones.

It's simple and oh so delicious. Pick a cookie, pick an ice cream and pick some toppings. Wait is short and it is right next to Funland.

It's a classic , cookies and icecream. The fresh cookies are the right combo with the ice cream. Kids like the idea of choosing what goes together, even if it is sour gummie worms.

Ever since BYOC opened my kids have been obsessed! They love standing in line perusing the menu and trying to figure out what bizarre combination of cookie, ice cream and topping they will come up with. Everything is tasty in the extreme, but the best part of the experience are the people behind the little window. Always pleasant and helpful,... More

After a few visits to Island Creamery this was a nice change. The large warm cookie with some ice cream and your choice of topping for a reasonable price. They even had bug spray available if the Mosquitos are biting while you wait in line. By the way after dinner you will wait in line at all if the treat... More

I took my daughter and granddaughter here after their first day of camp. I had a hard time finding it, due to my GPS, but it was worth it. Huge, warm, homemade cookies of our choice ( ours were oatmeal raisin, sugar cookie, and chocolate chip or brownie), our choice of ice cream (our were banana pudding, cotton candy, and... More

Great dessert! The one cookie, one scoop, one topping was enough for all of us. Sugar cookie, chocolate chip and brownie were all excellent. The ice cream and toppings were also great. Wish we would have went earlier in our week so we could have went back more!

We had planned to go to our hotel to change and go to dinner after a half day at the nature preserve. However, the calling of cookies and ice cream overwhelmed us. ;) This little food truck has a big idea that is sure to be a favorite for all. You pick from a list of cookies, ice cream and... More
