Yummy!

I worked at Whitey's when I was younger and I can personally tell you that they have very high standards for everything! It is so clean and well maintained! And the ice cream is awesome. Try a blueberry Oreo shake...trust me...it sounds weird but it is really good. Their blueberry flavoring is so... read more

Whitey's is local to the Quad Cities. They have been making and serving ice cream here for many years. It is the finest ice cream we have ever had. Don't know where they come up with the different flavors, but they are really outstanding.

Whiteys is a must if you are in the Quad Cities. Family, Locally owned. Never have found any ice cream that compares to Whiteys. People travel just to go to Whiteys!

Wonderful, caring employees. Facilities are always clean. Ice Cream is to die for. Order a malt or shake..they don't add any milk! Creative flavors...try them all!

East Moline almost in Silvis - you can see the ice cream but more important they keep the ice cream cold so it has a better flavor. The other locations have varying temps and you can get hard packed in a cup that has the consistency of whipped cream before you can get home. They used to claim their shakes... More

Incredibly good spot for ice cream however you want it. Try an old standard like a hot fudge sundae or banana split- or go for something a bit different - like an upside down malt or a tin roof sundae. Whatever you order, you will love it. Many locations thru out Quad cities area
