“Excellent Ice Cream”

Big Buck's Homemade Ice Cream
Ranked #3 of 12 Dessert in Corolla
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the only real unique ice cream place out in Corolla. Homemade ice cream, tons of flavors to choose from, and lots of other interesting candies and other items. However, it's packed, every night in the summer. The line moves well so don't let that discourage you.. Even when the line is out the door, which happens often, it moves pretty well...but it still makes it a little stressful, so you pretty much go in and out, and grab a bench or something in Tim Buck II to eat your ice cream.

A regular stop for us during our annual OBX week. Good, good ice cream.

This is by far the best ice cream parlor and old time candy store in OBX. There was a lot of variety with unique flavors, generous poritions, fair prices, and most importantly, high quality ingredients with tremendous flavor. I definitely recommend skipping those bland generic places for this gem! I only wish it was closer to my home so I could go more often!

Very busy parlor with a fast moving line as they're very efficient in giving you great service. They don't slap your order together either as they take the proper time as they have plenty of staff. Many, many ice cream options and clearly homemade with quality ingredients. They also have a coffee bar and candy treats galore. We went there often and were pleased each visit.

The line of people will hinder you from easily walking around and they need to find an alternative way to form a line during busier times.
