“expensive, but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Be forewarned. Bringing your family to Oberweis can really add up. Currently expect to pay $7.29 for the banana split. Other sundaes come in two sizes: smaller size ranges from $4.29 to $ 6.49; larger size ranges from $5.99 to $8.19. Shakes and malts are $5.29 for 16 oz. and $6.99 for 24 oz. There are kids' sizes available for a few items, and of course you can share an item. Having said that, the quality is truly excellent and worth the splurge.
One of my favorite features is the wall of dairy cases where you can buy eggs, butter, milk, yogurt, etc.....AND birthday cakes ($22.99) with candles conveniently for sale on the same shelves. You can also buy ice cream pies ($17.99) neatly divided into 8 slices.
The dining area is large and clean and they supply a really darling coloring page for young visitors.
Because Tripadvisor won't let you post until you indicate whether you were there for breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee or tea, dinner, drinks, or late night food -- I had trouble completing my review. None of those choices apply. I decided to amuse myself by saying I came for breakfast -- because they do have fruit smoothies on the menu -- but the truth is I came for the decadent ice cream, as a late-in-the afternoon snack. Snacking is not (yet) a Tripadvisor choice.

“Great ice cream and chocolate milk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

While in the Chicago area I had the chance to try Oberweis Dairy. Over several days, I had a milkshake (with chocolate chip ice cream), a frostbite with M&Ms, and the famous chocolate milk (half gallon glass jug). Everything I tried was awesome. If you are ever near an Oberweis Dairy you have to give them a try. If you like milk or ice cream you won't be disappointed.

“Best Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Get the hand-packed pints or quarts. This is the BEST ice cream I have had. Better even than Blue Bell and I live in TX!
