Me and my husband decided to stop here and get dessert after we kept hearing from others how good it was; and boy were they right. This is a diet disaster waiting to happen, but it sure was worth it. They offer a lot of different options, prices were pretty good and the food was awesome.

OMG! I'm ready to go back for more! Great food truck, great staff (very patient and explained every option), great concept, great choices! My beau and I split an icecream sandwich- cake batter cookie on the bottom, salted caramel icecream and chocolate chip cookie on the top! The cookies were gigantic, soft and delicious! I'd get the same combination again,... More

HAVE to visit if you are on Chincoteague! If you have a sweet tooth this is a meal in itself! Choose from a decadent homemade enormous cookies variety. Add your favorite of approximately 15 ice cream flavors and top it off with another scrumptious cookie or add your favorite topping from their selection to make a sundae type dessert. If... More

A real summer ice cream stand? All outside. Great on a summer evening. Good service...long lines. But the family loved building their own I cream cookie.

Earlier today, I left a negative revkew due to confusion over hours of operation. I'm submitting a new review because before we left out we were actually able to grab one! My husband and i ordered a chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream, marshmallow whip, whipped cream, and sprinkles. For the price you really can't beat it!! The cookie... More

The homemade cookies are to die for and paired with ice cream even more amazing! So cool to customize your own dessert! Very friendly service too! Must stop if in town! (I had cake batter cookie sandwich with cookie dough ice cream. Heavenly)

Definitely very good, but it's a good thing this is a vacation spot, otherwise you wouldn't be able to justify eating so much sugar at one time! Amazing idea and delivery!!

Our favorite dessert while staying on Chincoteague. First you pick your cookie, then ice cream and toppings. So many choices! The cookie comes out warm topped with ice cream & toppings. It was so big my daughter and I shared. Picture below doesn't do it justice - we had already ate a little. When in Chincoteague this is the place... More

We stopped at BYOC after riding around the island. EVERYONE enjoyed their delicious ice cream, I really enjoyed my milkshake. But the best part was how nice the owner was, who also came out while we were sitting on the bench and shared a laugh with us. I recommend this place.
