This weekend was the third time I have been to this place on my way home from Yosemite. The rocky road milkshake was amazing and great value at under $5. Next time I go Im definitely going to try the nachos and a sandwich as they looked really good too.

This small town family run frozen yogurt and ice cream shop is delicious. They offer seasonal frozen yogurt flavors such as peach in the spring and pumpkin in he fall. The owners are friendly and the price is just right. This place has seen me trough 2 pregnancies. Delicious!!!!

We were really glad we stopped here on the way to Yosemite-- mostly because of the AMAZINGLY friendly owner, who offered to make us a custom veggie sandwich (waiving the extra fee for the avocado), urged us to get free refills for the road, let us use the much-needed employees-only bathroom, and generally made us feel at home for the mere hour we stopped here!

The sandwiches are on basic bread like your mom would stock... pretty simple, but they get the job done on a road trip. Seems like the main draw here is probably the ice cream and fro-yo... And the people, of course!

The Big Dipper is a small, family owned ice cream and sandwich shop in Escalon CA. Easy access on Hwy 108 in the middle of town, the ice cream has been great on every stop we've made. Our favorite is the hot fudge sunday made with homemade ice cream. And the sandwiches are a really good deal too. For $4.99 we had a full sandwich, potato salad and soft drink. A wonderful break from the usual fast food chains.
