Big Dipper Ice Cream Parlor
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Dunkirk
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 16, 2013

This is conveniently located for anyone on Central Avenue in Dunkirk. But the prices are to high. Good variety of choices tho. Every Sunday in the summer, we get in the car and drive to the reservation for gas and then we stop a Frosty Treat. The ice cream is creamy and they have a large variety of choices for sundaes and reasonably priced. There is also a place in the back with tables and big field for the kids to run.

A very good variety of flavors, though the ice cream is nothing special. This place has been around for well over forty five years, and is a popular place for kids and familys. Great place to bring the kids with ample seating.

This is a hometown favorite! Everyone loves it. The ice cream is homemade, the sizes are pretty good depending on who serves it and the prices are cheap enough that you can make it a nice weekly treat. Lots of different flavors of ice cream, low-fat yogurt, milkshakes, and other sweets. Lots of different specialy ice creams like sundaes and banana splits!

I was visiting a friend in her childhood town of Dunkirk. She insisted we go and get ice cream in the very same parlor she loved as a child. Just delicious! I had the best scoop of Rocky Road I have had in ages. The scoop was huge! They advertise always having 32 flavors of hard ice cream, 5 flavors of soft custard and 3 flavors of frozen yogurt. They are open everyday, 1130AM to 1000PM. Plenty of seating. As my friend said…’sometimes it is as good as you remember’…
