Time warp ice cream and sandwich shop

Best non-chain ice cream in town. Great variety of specialty sundaes, good burgers and sandwiches. Funky old-style atmosphere with lots of dusty collectibles filling walls, nooks and crannies.

I have never been disappointed in food or service. Whether I get a hamburger, sandwich, or just ice cream, I am always happy! This is one of the best kept secrets of Amarillo!!

Four of us had lunch at Malcolm's today -- 2 burgers, 1 corned beef & swiss, 1 Reuben, all very good. Side of fries & fruit also fine. The Mini Mundaes, though, were absolutely wonderful -- just the right amount of dessert to top off our meals.

I have come here for years and never once not liked the Burger. The Ice cream is awesome as well. A must try... Sometimes service is crazy but mostly great

This is a locally owned restaurant that has that old time diner feel to it. The hamburgers are great and you can order them exactly the way you like it. Malcolm's also offers various other sandwiches and meals. Save room for dessert! The sundaes, ice creams and other deserts will have you coming back. Malcolm's has been taking plastic now... More

This was suggested as a late night ice cream spot. It is an old school place with small booths & nostalgic signs to decorate. The sundaes were served in big glass mugs and 2-3 inches above the top with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. The old fashioned banana split was in a heavy glass dish and loaded. Delicious! They also... More

Watch out for the ice cream!! You will not be able to resist!!! The ice cream is homemade and really inexpensive-and sooooo good! We even ordered it before our meals-I haven't had a sundae in many years and I ordered several over the course of about 5 or 6 visits! I stayed in Amarillo for a week and had burgers... More

I'm pretty sure they make their own ice cream there and it's better than Braums. Can't really go wrong with any of the options and very well priced and environment.

It's milkshakes and burgers-what do you expect? The atmosphere was fine for a family-oriented diner like this. The food seemed pretty average for this type of eating.

Malcolm's is an ice cream shop with burgers, sanwiches, and chicken. We have eaten there for 20 years. The food is always great - nothing fancy, but great. Service is excellent, and the prices are very fair. My wife and I will keep going again and again.
