Welcome to Dunky’s Ice Cream and Diner! 

After many years and hand churning numerous gallons of ice cream, I’m pleased to announce that Dunky’s Ice Cream and Diner will now be available at a permanent location with a rustic family atmosphere in my home town of Licking, Missouri.

We are working hard to refurbish our new location at 117 N. Main Street. Stop on by if you want to pitch in and get involved with creating a place where joyful memories are sure to be made at Dunky’s Ice Cream  and Diner.

As many of you already know, I have two passions in life. The first is making (& eating) delicious homemade ice cream and the second passion is painting. Dunky’s Ice Cream and Diner features ample space in a back room to hold art classes. Art work created by my students, talented friends and of course myself will adorn the walls of the dining area of Dunky’s Ice Cream  and Diner.Check back here often for updates!  Thanks for all your support!

Best Regards,
Gary Duncan, owner

Old Fashioned Homemade Ice Cream

Homemade American and Italian Food

Dunky's Diner

Assuming that by opening up in October we would likely begin writing a book by December about “How to Survive selling Ice Cream in Winter”. However we were amazed at the support of the community and the amount of ice cream we were selling in the cold weather.

Several friends and supporters suggested that we should offer soups & sandwiches for lunch. That made good sense and not much equipment was needed that we didn’t already have. So that began. But it is America……and, customers began asking for more sandwiches, soups and offerings….we gradually obliged and offered more.
