I finally got to try their specialties! I had the Mighty Mike. This is about the closest you can get to hotdog addiction! It is everything good on a bun, a bacon wrapped, cheese filled 1/4 lb hotdog, deep fried and placed in a fresh, soft bun with mustard and onions. They also make shakes in almost every flavor on...

I've never had shake here that I didn't like! There's almost every flavor you could ever want and you can mix flavors too! The food is good old fashioned greasy spoon/drive in food and is delicious! My boyfriend and I come here at least once a month to try new milkshake combos.

I've been eating at Scoopers since they opened. The burgers always have a flavor that reminds me of the burgers you got as a kid. I think it's the old grill. It just adds that "something". And you can't beat the shakes. Almost any flavor you can think of. And when I want a ice cream of any kind on... More

Scoopers drive-in is definitely a fun experience... pull up and park, order and get it delivered! The food is a bit pricey considering quality... Don't get me wrong, the food is good but you can heat up chicken strips at home for much less $. The fry sauce is $0.25 but its OMG delicious. The milkshakes... Where do I begin!?... More

When you are hungry for a good burger & shake or other comfort food (such as the yummy chicken strips and fries) scoopers is the perfect place to go! If your order is to go , you can place your order at the window and they will bring it to your car when it is ready. They also have a... More

They have great food here, although some of the drive in boxes dont work the food is excellent. They make milkshakes out of ice cream made on site and real milk...they are the best.

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
