This is the creamiest ice cream we have ever had. It was very, very good. We will be going back before we head back home to Texas.

I wish I could take everyone there. The ice cream is made with ALL the good stuff. Not just crushed nuts, whole nuts. Not just pieces of expensive bing cherries but who whole ones. No chips of chocolate but huge flacks. Yum. Yum.
It's a must if in Hot Springs.

This place was great. The homemade ice cream was some of the best ice cream I have ever had. Many flavors to choose from and they told us that they rotate often and it is made fresh everyday. I had a turtle milkshake and it was delicious while my wife had the blueberry and daughter had strawberry cheesecake in a chocolate dipped waffle cone. Do yourself a favor and stop by here. You will be glad you did.

This is the real thing! It's so good. AND they now take credit cards. The staff was super friendly and helpful..and PATIENT. We had a group that included 5 teenagers and they were taking forever to pick what they wanted. The guy working the counter patiently answered all questions and let them have some tastes.
The icecream isn't cheap, but it's well worth it.

We stopped in for 2 milk shakes and were pleasantly surprised. There was only one young man working the counter, and he played it like a smoth machine! Every dish of ice cream and shake is made one at a time, as you order it. And you get to watch it being put together. The ice cream is smooth and the creamiest anywhere, and the shakes are so thick you need a spoon. About 30 flavors, including the old favorites of chocolate, vanilla & strawberry, plus some "area" favorites you might like to try (like maple). The prices are a little high, but then, you're not getting a McDonald's cone here. If you only get one dessert in Hot Springs, this is the place!
