If you’re from Dallas or even Waco you’re sure to have heard of Pokey O’s. This Dallas staple & Waco food truck serves fresh in-house baked cookies filled with good ole Blue Bell Ice Cream (or try the cookies à la carte).
Pokey O’s received its namesake from the owners pup “Pokey” and her last name, which (you guessed it) begins with an “O”! The Dallas location has been in business for over ten years nestled at Mockingbird & 75 (map below).
The interior of Pokey O’s is classic. Upon entering you’ll feel right at home, from the neighborly staff to the timeless setup. Enjoy your treat at a table inside or out. Just remember, don’t let that Summer heat melt your treat! ☀️💧
Before our trip I knew I had to indulge in their Snickerdoodle cookie. For years I have sworn by another bakery’s ‘doodle, with one visit Pokey O’s has dethroned that bakery. Not only is their Snickerdoodle top-notch, all their handcrafted cookies are. I opted for an ice cream sandwich, per their recommendation I ordered my ‘doodle sandwich to be filled with Blue Bell’s Coffee ice cream. This sugar and cinnamon cookie was made for coffee. ☕
We also ordered a Chocolate Chip Cookie & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream sandwich – cliché as it may be, this was heavenly. Everyone knows Blue Bell does the best Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and now we know Pokey O’s does the best Chocolate Chip Cookie! 🍪
We were offered one of Pokey O’s signature Ice Cream Taco’s. With shells made in-house that hold up to three various ice cream flavors (+ toppings!), this is the big kahuna on the menu! We opted for an array of flavors: Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookies & Cream and Vanilla topped with hardening chocolate syrup and sprinkles, naturally. What a fun & unique idea. Muy bueno, Pokey O’s! 🌮
💭 Did you know: Pokey O’s also offers scrumptious popcorn’s (such as “Pickle Pop”), cookie cakes, Pokey Treats & signature “Pokey O’s Ice Cream Cakes”. 🍿🍪🍨🎂
Whether you’re looking for a cold treat or an escape from the heat, Pokey O’s is all of the above + more! 🍨
