Stumbled upon this little hole-in-the-wall shop and was not disappointed. I've been let down by other custard places due to the custard not being that creamy -- almost icy. But Scooter's was very smooth and rich! Not quite on par with Rita's, but nonetheless delicious....More

Vanilla with Reeses is my favorite. Strawberry concrete, just divine. Chocolate malt, the stuff of legend. Perfect spot after pizza and wine. Long live Scooters Frozen Custard!

Oh wow! This place is AMAZING!! I had the peanut butter & pretzel concrete, which was so good and so creamy. Loved the big chucks of chocolate covered pretzel mixed in. I'll have to come here more often.

My 10 year old daughter just LOVES "The Blackhawk"...and I have to say, she's right. It's pretty darn excellent! Very friendly staff; great frozen custard; in-store, to-go, and pre-packed. Great neighborhood place!

Went here with my family for a late afternoon ice cream treat. The concrete I had (vanilla with cookie dough) was one of the best I've ever had. They have basic flavors with a hundred different "mix ins" to choose from. Once you go, you'll...More
