This is a fun place to get some great frozen custard. I had their "concrete" custard which is no frills frozen custard that tasted great. They have dozens of custard combos to chose from which contain fruit, candy, chocolate and more. The employees here are extremely friendly and helpful. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards. I can't... More

They only take checks or cash so come ready. The ice cream is awesome. I had pb fudge. My friend had the "poodle" I think. Both were great.

If you have never had a ScoopDog shake, you are missing out! There is nothing like it! I am addicted to the peanut butter shake! Their hotdogs are also the best you can get ANYWHERE! They obviously use high quality ingredients, friendly staff, great drive-through and in warmer weather, patio tables to eat outside.

I absolutely love Scoop Dog and they have the best Custard in the LR area. My wife and I would stop by every other week to cure her pregnancy cravings.

Hello! I do not like ice cream BUT this place.... The frozen custard "concrete" is awesome. Fun little place. They also serve hot dogs but we just had the concrete. I'd say everyone needs to visit this place. Worth the drive!

Well I have to say one of the best frozen custard in little rock. My favorite is the good ole Begal. You must try it if you are near by. They only take cash no credit cards,so have cash.

Was in the area and wanted a great hot dog, so I checked Tripadvisor and found that people raved about this place. We ordered one each of the 4 different hot dogs and we split them so we could each sample them. Everyone of them were excellent, Loved each one. I did fall in love with their Chicago dog the...

This is a great place to eat. The frozen custard is heavenly. The butter pecan is my favorite. The hot dogs are the best in Little Rock. A great place for the family.
