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!

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.

So glad we checked trip advisor and found this quaint, local custard shop. We had BBQ for dinner so didn't try the dogs, even though the selections looked great. As tempting as a large sundae was, they offer it them in Jr sizes and that was just right. Creamy custard at the right temperature with balance of salty nuts on... More

Ice cream/custard was very good. Lots of choices of stuff to add in. They also have snacks like hot dogs. They only accept cash and checks but no debit or credit cards which can be a hassle. Overall it as great and will definitely be going back.

This place is amazing! You can't get these flavor of concretes anywhere else. Whoopie pie, birthday cake, sugar cookie, rice krispie treat, the list of fun and tasty flavors goes on and on. This is not your ordinary ice cream place, it's extraordinary and a must try! Always great service too, really nice people!
