Grand Slam Home Run

Located across from Hyatt Place, this ice cream mecca really rocks. Always crowded, always the best! Don't miss it when in Omaha.

Not sure what all the hub bub about this place is, but it's fun to people watch while waiting in the long line. The ice cream is good, but no better that other ice cream stores. The service is horribly slow due to customers tasting. They should have a line for people who are not tasting to get their ice... More

Wow the line never stopped all evening, and after walking by it for two hours, we finally decided to get in the line and give it a go. You'd think for the line length there would be a sense of organization, but the staff had to stand near the counter in awkward directions trying to figure out who'd been helped.... More

Ted & Wally's has the best homemade ice cream in Omaha! They offer a variety of favors and some exotic ones to boot. They only receive four stars because they don't have enough seating and the line can take an hour to be served.

The first time we tried to go here, the line was out the door and two guys coming out said they waited an hour. We aren’t patient people, so we waited until the next day at an odd hour to try again. We was the first in line, thank goodness! I had a chocolate malt and my husband had a... More

This is not your typical ice cream shop. For starters, you can watch them make the ice cream right in the lobby. Secondly, there are many unique flavors produced daily – so many, in fact, that a chalk board is used to list them. Be sure and ask for a sample if you want to try something before buying. And...

This little Omaha ice cream shop in Old Market serves hundreds of customers daily and no wonder! Many interesting, yummy flavors are created each day, and two of them are prepared in 100 yr. old churns right in front of your eyes. The few minutes you may spend on line is worth the wait. Sorbet and vegan ice cream are... More
