Wish I Could Go Every Day

We love Ted & Wally's. There is typically a very long line on the weekends during the summer - but it is worth the wait. The ice cream flavors are always spot on, and super delicious handmade.

Amazing! This is a must have if you're in Omaha. Clearly homemade, rich, creamy and extremely flavorful! I had cinnamon ice cream, which tasted like a homemade snickerdoodle - so good!! Prices are reasonable, selection is limited to the flavors they make that day, there are a restroom and seating indoors and be prepared to wait in line for a... More

Omaha staple. Good place for ice cream and related products. However..line is always long, sometimes out the door. I'm a shake guy. Happened to try one down the street at Dolce in Old Market. Better than Ted and Wallys. If ice cream is your thong..stay here and wait in line. Of you like shakes, try Dolce.

Ted & Wally's is a locally owned ice cream shop. Ice Cream is made daily with lots of unique flavors. You will never be disappointed, as you can sample until you find one that fits you!! The only negative is there can be lines. This week I took an 87 year old friend from NY who LOVED it and had... More

Not sure what the fuss is about or why people insist on waiting 30-40 minutes for "ok" ice cream. The lines seriously are a drag and honestly make you think you will be getting the best ice cream ever. I was not impressed at all by the flavor board when I walked in. So many odd types of ice cream... More

Ted & Wally's is located right across from the Hyatt Place, so it was impossible for us to get back to our room without an ice-cream nightcap. Like others, we had to stand in line a bit, but the staff were efficient and the wait was not an issue. Nice selection of non-mainstream flavors that change regularly, so you don't... More

Ted & Wally's offers really good ice cream make in very large White Mountain freezers. They offer unique flavors that change constantly. They had a goat cheese ice cream as well as one based on a Hawaiian recipe that were both awesome. I tried a sample of the Epicurean Durian they were offering, not my cup of tea but applauding...

A waiter recommended that we go to Ted & Wally's for ice cream...and to expect a waiting line. Even at 9:30 at night, there was a long line. The ice cream was okay, but I don't believe it was worth the long wait in line.

This busy ice cream shop had about a dozen flavors (pumpkin muffin, blueberry chocolate, vanilla, lemon sherbet, etc) and some good waffle cones. The ice cream is dense and "homemade" in churns. The rootbeer float was the winner, waffle cones a strength, ice cream was good not great.

We went to Ted & Wally's based on all the rave reviews, expecting something special. Unfortunately we were disappointed. The place itself is interesting, with a nice retro vibe. We did have to wait in line, but it moved fairly efficiently and the service folks were quite friendly. The selection was a bit limited and didn't have very many "special"... More
