Oberweis is a franchised ice cream store that feels like an independent. Delicious treats of all kinds, not just ice cream. We especially like the cinnamon and the mango.

Better than average ice cream but not as good as Petersens. Some flavors taste artificial like the black cherry. Its a little overpriced but a cute community hangout with the ice cream parlor feel.

Scrupulously clean and inviting "vintage" structure located in alleyway just behind Avenue Self-Park Garage. Lengthy, expansive, and expensive treat menu. You can sit and consume your ice cream or beverage while enjoying a game of chess in a relaxed, quiet environment. Counter staff are unfailingly polite and patient, but are the slowest-moving, least efficient service crew I can recall. It... More

They have really good shakes, The chocolate milk is better tho (and cheaper!) It comes in the 1950's style glass bottles, too. If you live in Chicagoland, you can have their milk delivered

I don't think anyone has Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice cream as amazing as Oberweis! Their coffee ice cream is also incredible! I do NOT eat this stuf on a regular basis, but when I want to, this is my first choice - and their thick milk shakes are also worth the calories and high cholesterol :) I would get... More

This is a must visit place for my nephews when they come to town on vacation. It has become a family tradition. RIch Ice Cream, fresh toppings, and cute atmoshere complete with chess for the kids to play, make it a fun local hang out.

I loved the ice cream and milk shakes here. If you are near here, try this place out. The chocolate peanut butter milkshake is to die for!!!

Can you say brownie sundae!!! I can!! Oberweis is an amazing company...they do it all, sell dairy, juice, desserts, eggs and a whole bunch of other stuff. The brownie sundae is by far my favorite...get extra fudge and try it with cookie dough ice cream and voila a remarkable treat. Try it!!! Now that would have been my review if... More

Run-of-the-mill mass-manufactured ice cream joint. Overpriced, bland, and freezer-burned strawberry when I was there. Petersen's on Chicago Avenue in Oak Park is better. Or Brown Cow in Forest Park. Or save some money and just go to Baskin-Robbins. How Oberweis is as highly-rated on this site as it is is simply beyond my comprehension.

Oberweis is a great place to go with basically anyone to get a delicious dessert. They do pretty much everything well, from cones to malts. Their flavors are pretty normal, but you can tell the ice cream is top notch - no ice crystals, very smooth and creamy. They make their own waffle cones and you can smell the aroma... More
