Best Shakes in Reno and Sparks

Scoopers is an old fashion style Drive In. It is located in a older part of Sparks. Their food is really good. But their shakes are in my opinion the best in this area.

The taco and fries I had were good , but the shakes were awesome. The place is in an old A&W drive in. The dining you can order take out or eat in the small dining room. Again the shakes were the bomb.

The peanut butter milkshakes are a life changing experience. I added a banana to one and just about lost my mind. The fries are crispy and salty and the burgers are tasty, too. It says it's a "drive in", but everyone gets out of their car and comes to the window. Drag your butt out of the car, it's worth... More

Waited and waited and was never served. We were excited to try the 'drive-in' experience, only to sit, and sit, and never get waited on.

I love this place for it's juicy burgers, shakes and charm. During the summer you can find classic car clubs meeting up here for dinner and a show. When they're there you feel transported back to the 1950s, This place is what Sonic tries to emulate. You can order while parked, from the comfort of your car; or walk up... More

I stopped by on my way to pyramid lake on a rainy day. I grabbed a burger, shake and frys. Their shake menu is huge. I got the rasberry white chocolate. Very good. And the burger was nice to eat as well. The drive in part - the speakers were broken, and it was a general hole in the wall... More
