If you have never had a ScoopDog shake, you are missing out! There is nothing like it! I am addicted to the peanut butter shake! Their hotdogs are also the best you can get ANYWHERE! They obviously use high quality ingredients, friendly staff, great drive-through and in warmer weather, patio tables to eat outside.

Scoop Dog has the best custard in Central Arkansas. I always look forward to the Hoildays because I enjoy the specialty flavors especially the eggnog custard. I try to go when the lines are not long, but the long lines verify that it is good stuff and worth the wait. I appeeciate not having yo get out of my vehicle... More

I absolutely love Scoop Dog and they have the best Custard in the LR area. My wife and I would stop by every other week to cure her pregnancy cravings.

Hello! I do not like ice cream BUT this place.... The frozen custard "concrete" is awesome. Fun little place. They also serve hot dogs but we just had the concrete. I'd say everyone needs to visit this place. Worth the drive!

Well I have to say one of the best frozen custard in little rock. My favorite is the good ole Begal. You must try it if you are near by. They only take cash no credit cards,so have cash.

Was in the area and wanted a great hot dog, so I checked Tripadvisor and found that people raved about this place. We ordered one each of the 4 different hot dogs and we split them so we could each sample them. Everyone of them were excellent, Loved each one. I did fall in love with their Chicago dog the...

This is a great place to eat. The frozen custard is heavenly. The butter pecan is my favorite. The hot dogs are the best in Little Rock. A great place for the family.

So glad we checked trip advisor and found this quaint, local custard shop. We had BBQ for dinner so didn't try the dogs, even though the selections looked great. As tempting as a large sundae was, they offer it them in Jr sizes and that was just right. Creamy custard at the right temperature with balance of salty nuts on... More

Ice cream/custard was very good. Lots of choices of stuff to add in. They also have snacks like hot dogs. They only accept cash and checks but no debit or credit cards which can be a hassle. Overall it as great and will definitely be going back.

Thank Shane D
