Whitey's Is What I Grew Up On!

Being a lifelong Quad City resident, Whitey's is the absolute BEST ice cream in the world! Whenever we have family members in town, Whitey's has to be one of the MUST stops on their trip home.

The ice cream is delicious and there are many different choices on the menu. There is no indoor seating but there are a few benches outside.

Whitey's is a long-standing fixture in Moline. Nothing will compare for most natives who grew up with it...ever. Good people and good product. A+

Always good ice cream. Expect to wait in long lines on hot days/nights, but it is worth the wait. Also I like to get the Sgt. Camo because 100% of the proceeds goes towards military veterans groups. Oh and it tastes really good as well.

A family tradition which has been around since my kids were teenagers. The best ice cream in town, especially the turtle malts.

Totally amazing flavor and texture. It's just perfect in everyway. Employees are so kind and helpful. They will give you a sample taste if your not sure. My husband Dan Moore is from Moline Il & grew up on whiteys ice cream. I'm proud to be apart of Whitey's addiction.
