We were enjoying our ice cream until the manager came up to us and told us we couldn’t have our dog when it was a service dog. He started cussing at people and trying to start a fight, horrible person and shouldn’t be manager.

When we lived in northwest Arkansas, we would visit the Short Stop multiple times. The main reason was to get their enormous ice cream cones. Best deal in the country!! Their burgers and fried pies are also amazing. Worth the 20 minute drive from Bentonville...or Rogers to visit.More

I don't know what happen to this place. It use to be a great place to get a biscuit egg breakfast sandwich and a cinnamon roll. But we ordered today and the egg was cold and the egg white edges were like rubber. Really inedible....The cinnamon roll, who knows when or where they were made came out of the refrigerator and cold and hard and didn't have much taste. The biscuit was cold but good. I was so disappointed. Used to be great. Now I may just go to Sonic in Pea Ridge. My wife said it was because we ordered late (8:30am). But it didn't use to matter the time.More

My son in law is an ice cream eating machine. He had seen a photo and wanted to go. This place is great for a whole lot more than ice cream, but the ice cream stold the show. Fun stop if you are anywhere close.

No breakfast on Sunday, tweakers work there. They do not eat anyway so how can they cook. WORST BREAKFAST EVER. Even the the gravy was cold. I was told to "enjoy" by the waitress, did she not know the terrible condition of the food she...served me? NEVER AGAIN. I will drive by this place and not stop for the rest of my life.More

We’ve come here for years for icecream. Love this place. And now they’ve used the space they have wisely with items people who are traveling will purchase. But the employees were on drugs. The woman in the icecream restaurant couldn’t function at all. So sad.

We were on our way to Branson and saw The Short Stop, family told us about it and we thought since we were hungry let try it. They didn’t disappoint - some great food for us all. Also once seeing one after another with ice...cream we had to try. For sure we will be back and will have to make this a regular stop. Highly recommend you try!More

I ordered the "baby" and, after watching those in front of me, just cut to the chase and ordered it in a cup. Fun watching people try to balance even the "baby" on a cone much less the larger ones! Only downside is the variety...- chocolate or vanilla only.More

Ice cream is why we come, it's so good and VERY LARGE. They serve it all day. But. the other food is very good also. They change over food service at 10:30 so beware of the wait. But get the ice cream cone and wait...on your food. It's a convenience store also, very nice place to stop after the curvy roads.More
