“best custard at the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Near the place we normally stay and even though it is a 2 mile round trip walk, it is worth every step. Their Pumpkin Pie custard makes reminds you of Grandma's Thanksgiving pie. Would walk 5 miles for a cone! A "must" for any trip to OBX!!

“Yum! Yum! Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We've passed this 'ice cream' stand for the last few years but were always too full to stop. After being advised by friends that we just had to try it we made it a point to stop this trip. Which may have been a mistake because I developed an obsession and went three times in a week. I grew up with a grandpa who would drive 20 miles out of his way for frozen custard so I have something with which to compare. The frozen custard here is WONDERFUL! So smooth & creamy & delicious. During one visit I ordered the Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae: chewy brownie, topped w/custard, hot fudge and real whipped cream. It was huge! and fabulous. The milkshakes are thick and rich; the waffle cones crisp and flavorful.
Next year we plan on trying a burger and fries - we've been told they are great also. If they are anything like the frozen custard we missed out (this year).

“Best Frozen Custard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

They have the best frozen custard ever. The people working there are very pleasant and friendly. My Sister and I went there twice and will go there again when we go back. There was nothing that we disliked.

“yummy frozen custard happiness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

The custard is made fresh daily! Today the flavor a were vanilla, chocolate and pumpkin pie! I had a wicked waffle which is an " ice cream" sandwich with waffles...it was good, but it had the potential to be epic if the waffles were made fresh. My husband had a coconut cream pie shake, he liked it but says that he would have rather just had plain custard...which he did have a cup of the chocolate and it was as promised awesome! The girls loved the vanilla. You order at one window and pick up at another. There are some picnic tables to sit and enjoy your custard happiness At, but not a lot of shade, so one must eat quick ;). There is a 10% off coupon in the obx passport booklet. I did not see bathrooms

“Great fast food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Best hamburgers I ever had. We just didn't expect such a great burger with fancy lettuce, choice of cheese, red onions and tomatoes in an ice cream establishment. Also had milk shakes that were to sooooo good.
