Fun place, walk up to the outside counter to order, no inside dining at all. I have been standing in line with 20 people in front of me when it was 15 degrees outside- that in itself says something! Unique flavors if you choose, or plenty of 'standard' flavors if you don't dare. Personal favorite- lemon sorbet. Be ready to wait in line, but it is worth the wait!

Big Dipper is a great must stop in Missoula! There is always a line but trust me, its well worth the wait. They have unique flavors and treats to enjoy! Give the Huckleberry a try!

Prices were very reasonable. Ice cream was great- huckleberry was bland, but mint chip and mocha chip were outstanding. They also sell cute buttons, tees, and stickers with their logo. Very friendly staff too.

A must-visit ice cream spot in Missoula! Each time I'm in town visiting my university student son, he knows to head over to Big Dipper Ice Cream. Lots of yummy, interesting flavors to choose from, but I always seem to order their chocolate on a sugar cone! At night, even in the late fall and winter you'll find a line of both locals and visitors waiting patiently on line for their turn at the windows to order. WORTH THE WAIT!

We went here while visiting my brother in Missoula, and it was great! Definitely some of the best ice cream I've had, and they have really good, unique flavors. Huckleberry is a must if you're from out of town - we don't have huckleberry anything in Texas! He says there's a line there all day.
