“Best custard ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

So delicious! Brought our 5 kids after climbing to the top of the Wright Bros. Memorial. It was seriously the best custard I have ever had. Not to mention the Chili cheese fries are phenomenal!

“Great Deserts! Beats DQ any day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

My friends and I love this place! The prices are not too bad, maybe a little higher than a DQ but not enough to complain about. The custard more than makes up for it! I would try the chocolate but the vanilla is great as well. My wife and I tried the Hurricane which is basically a DQ blizzard and they tasted great. Our friends went with regular custard and they loved it. You can ask for multiple toppings as well just gotta ask but of course they charge for them. I did not try the burgers this place is focused on the custard just by how the menu is set up with the custard at the forefront. There is a pretty decent amount of outdoor seating but the parking is limited. If you go in the evening you can usually park on the side of the street or in the parking lot of the custom car garage on the other side of the road.

“Best desert in the Outer Banks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

All you need to do is look at the line of people waiting to get great food and custard. Don't let the lines steer you away, they move very quickly. Well worth the short wait.

“Probably the best "ice cream" on the beach...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

So good I had to go twice. The trick here is that they have vanilla and chocolate everyday and then a "flavor of the day." My mom has been trying to get lucky on the coconut again for the past two years now, but no luck. We've gotten to the point that we call in the afternoon to see what the flavor of the day is...

We had key lime and then went back the next night for georgia peach. Both were great, super creamy, but could have both used a little more flavoring. I like it amped-up...but maybe they are tempering the flavor towards the yankees that descend upon the Outer Banks each summer (zing!) And a secret....the next day you can buy pints of the "flavor of the day"...

The rest of the menu looks great as well - sandwiches and handcut fries. I look forward to tasting those next year...

Don't leave OBX without trying the custard! Yum! We even brought pints home for later. Definitely worth the stop.
