Very unique custard stand, only outside seating and drive thru. The custard is the best I have had, with so many options to mix in. The workers were very friendly and packed a custard to go that we were taking to someone else on ice for us! The custard is a little expensive, but worth it. The other things on... More

If you want great ice cream (custard) you really need to go here! The hot dogs are really good too. Try the "Beagle", my favorite.

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!
