There's usually a crowd but the wait is short. You'll get giant portions of ice cream--even the kiddy size is huge. Their ice cream is one of the best around. I love anything chocolate and they have a lot of choices--with or without nuts, marshmallows, mint, chips, other flavors mixed in...never got a bad one. The Ginger always tastes like... More

If there's a crowd, stop anyway! The lines go quickly and the ice cream choices are excellent. Ginger and Coconut are my personal favorites.

We spent 5 days in the motel next door and we had to go to the "ice cream place" next every night before going to bed. The ice cream is homemade and so very smooth and creamy. The selection of flavors is extensive. Made a mistake the first night and ordered a large --BIG mistake, the serving was not large... More

BF is one of those glorious institutions. I've visited shops all over the world and their ice cream is in the top tier - just the right amount of richness. The scoop sizes are huge - going above a small is crazy! But the best part is their menu of original flavore a from the Green Monster, Chunky Chocolate Pudding... More

Went here when visiting Concord. Didn't know what I was doing when I ordered a large, two scoop dark cherry with chocolate and a maple walnut scoop. The cherry was good, but I prefer it without the chocolate. The walnut was the best with big pieces of walnuts. Largest ice cream I have ever seen. Do yourself a favor and... More

Bedford Farms is a real staple of the suburbs! I know people who have been going there since they were kids, who now have kids of their own and still take them there. The parking lot can get very crowded on a warm summer night, but they do a pretty good job of getting through the line efficiently. The range... More

This ice cream stand in a building that also houses a ethnic restaurant is a staple in the immediate area. Their ice cream and concoctions are the best around. A must try even if it is off the beaten path.

Great Ice Cream and large servings at this outdoor ice cream stand. All the locals are there so you never know who you will meet. The bugs get pretty thick some evenings.

Just love their ice cream - tastes so natural, cream and just plain delicious. I always get the Black Raspberry which is my favorite but they have so many varieties you will find something you will enjoy for sure. Must visit if in the area.
