Excellent hang out - worth any wait you might endure

I can't wait to go back to Omaha for this ice cream. We heard of the long lines on Trip Advisor so our first night (a Thursday night) we ended up at Ted and Wallys around 5:30 or 6:00, there was a very short line so we had our ice cream in about 10 minutes. We all tried something different... read more

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

Intriguing favors!!! Some mainstream - others a bit more daring! We had the Dutch Chocolate and oh my yum!!!!!! The lines of people waiting patiently clued us in that this was the place to be! And the service was delightful! Oh for sure go!!!!!!!!!!

Homemade ice creams - unique flavors daily, and can 'create your own' mix-ins. It's a fun place to stop into for a treat!

Everyone loves Red and Wally's. If it is a nice hot day, there will be a line, but it is well worth the wait. Try the interesting flavors like guiness or sweet corn - it is Nebraska after all!

Delicious homemade ice cream. Make a point to stop. Tbe line out the door for 60 min is a testament to how good it is!

Great ice cream and other treats. The cost was reasonable, and it was a fantastic way to end a meal while walking around the Old Market. You can select from a range of unique flavors that change daily.

Even though each time I've been I've had to wait at least 30 minutes, the wait is worth it. Ted & Wally's is fabulous. They make their own ice cream, and there are different flavored ice creams throughout the day. The staff is really friendly and helpful, but they are also very efficient. The first time I visited I had... More

This is hand-churned ice cream. Deliciousness in a small cone (or cup). They change flavors daily, so check their Facebook after 12:00 noon each day, or be surprised. We went here twice, and it was a 20-30 minute wait each time, but worth it. There are a few tables and boots for seating. Most people seemed to leave after getting... More

After hearing such great things, I was extremely disappointed. We tried it a couple times just to see if we hit them on an off night, but it was equally lackluster both times. Actually, the second time was worse because they offered rosemary olive oil ice cream that night. We just got a sample because, really, there's a lot of... More
