This little store on Main St offers the most delicious ice cream in town. Real hand dipped ice cream!! The store is cash only--no debit/credit cards but it is well worth a trip to the ATM. Sit inside or on a rocking chair outside. Small town life at its best!!

A great little family owned ice cream shop! Very clean and friendly. They also sell amazing homemade fudge, I'd recommend trying a cone and taking some fudge home for later. :)

Stopped in to cool off, during a very warm spell. Had great conversation, and delicious ice cream. Also met some other nice patrons.

This is where you get REAL ice cream from a nice guy. The prices are fair and selection is good. I appreciate that Du Quoin still has an old fashion ice parlor.

Just a quaint little ice cream shop with delicious treats to eat. We took our daughter for a treat before the birth of her first child. It was scrumptious!

We really enjoyed our visit to Bob's ice cream shop on 7/9/15. Bob gave our 3-year-old daughter a free cone and refused to accept payment when we bought her a cup of ice cream.

Bob the owner is an absolute sweetheart. We like to go just to visit him! The ice cream is the best I've had in Southern Illinois.

I enjoyed the ice cream when I got it. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing inherently wrong with the shop. Don't be in a big hurry, because when there is only one person dipping the ice cream, it tends to take awhile. Make sure you have cash, because they don't except credit or debit.

Located next to the local cinema this is a great place to take the family for a treat either before or after a movie.Quality ice cream and local made fudges make for an enjoyable family atmosphere.Sometimes has local musicians perform at the store.
