Big Scoop is a fun, adorable burger and ice cream shack with a great retro vibe. Originally opened in the early 70s, many facets of the red-and-white decor have not changed, including stained-glass lights, and the round light bulbs lining each window. The original 1973 menu hangs on the wall, reminding you of times when a roast beef sandwich cost... More

The place was packed on a warm summer evening and they were flat out busy. Lovely gal came to at least 5 tables on her own and the other 2 were flying as well. Great selection of ice creams along with at least a dozen different creations to choose from. Even this busy waited less than 10 minutes from sitting... More

I had heard so much that maybe I excepted too much but when I got there I was told by two different employees where to order waited only to watch several people that came in after me get served first. Finally got served found that the ice cream was nothing special to be paying $5.00 for a small sundae.

The look and feel is retro, although the prices are a bit high. Excellent ice cream with all sorts of choices of flavors. You can have malts, floats, sundaes and just about anything made of ice cream. They have meals, but we've only eaten ice cream. Very friendly staff and tastes are cheerfully provided.

The Big Scoop looks and feels like it has been there for a long time. Bright red booths and Formica tables, checkerboard flooring, and a list of all the sundaes on the wall take you back in time. We placed our order at the counter, and the friendly server brought it to our table. Excellent homemade hot fudge, lots of... More

Spotting this old-time ice cream parlor on the way to dinner, we stopped here afterwards for and ice cream desert. While the atmosphere was great, looking at the menu board to make our selection, we noticed the excessive prices and decided to leave and visit the nearby Dairy Queen for our treat.

If you're looking for ice cream, this is the place to stop. Big Scoop is an old fashioned place with friendly service. We had the perfect traditional Banana Split and we loved it! This could be our regular stop on our way to Tulalip 😀

Took a time-out in Mount Vernon to get off the highway and stumbled across Big Scoop. Happy accident. My wife had a really tasty Brown Cow. I had a double dip cone in a waffle cone made on the premises. The cone is a bit fragile but good. Nice selection to choose from and good service.

I stopped in after driving by this place the old fashion look grabbed my eye. Loved the way it looked I ordered a single scoop Sunday with strawberry sauce it was good, a little messy in a glass Sunday dish that seemed maybe a little to small to give a single scoop with sauce justice. A little over $5 seems... More

First let me say...ALL businesses should take advantage of offering coupons. I would probably never have stopped in here w/o one. I treated my friend to a sundae & we both were pleased, not only with the cleanliness, bright & cheery atmosphere & the helpful waitress, but our choices . Upon looking @ the flavors of ice cream I mentioned... More
