We have visited this location several times and each time they amaze us with their great tasting ice cream and the wonderful flavors/mixtures they offer. It really is good ole fashion ice cream! Oh and their "Jiffy burger" is the bomb :)

This place has great ice cream and in interesting flavors. It is on the East Campus of UNL and you can get lunch here also for a reasonable price. I had an old favorite of mine, mint chocolate chip that was just divine. You can take your cone outside and walk around the gardens just to the left of the... More

The East Campus Dairy Store is famous for great ice cream and it IS delicious. Both the ice cream and the cheese are made in the adjoining plant with large windows so the public can view the process. But in the 35 years I worked upstairs from the Dairy Store, my favorite menu selection was the chicken enchilada soup. It... More

This is a must: the ice cream (and cheeses) are made on-site. Go grab a scoop or a cone of your standard favorite ice cream or something new (maple bacon perhaps?) and tour the amazing College of Natural Sciences gardens located right outside the front door. IDEAL way to spend an hour or so; it's wonderful.

Love to come here. The ice cream is fresh and reasonably priced. You would pay three times as much at one of the big name places, and they are not as good. Stop here if you are anywhere near Lincoln.

We attended CASNR sophomore/junior campus visit day and completed our day with a stop at the Dairy Store. We were able to secure parking in front, $.25 in the meter for 30 minutes of parking, and grab two dishes of ice cream. We had Cookies & Cream and Black Walnut Fudge, both really good. They were busy so it was... More

Always stop in when I am in Lincoln. The choices although not the widest are nonetheless adequate - and the ice cream is always very good. Always enjoy the holiday/special flavors - such as corn or bacon ice cream. Even better - the price is very reasonable and the helping more than adequate. Recommend this little gem for anyone looking... More

I really enjoy the treat when i go to the East Campus I usually will tend to try and stop by and get some ice cream here. The staff are so kind and I enjoy the flavors they have. Sometimes there can be a line but it is definitely worth the wait for the ice cream you get.
