I only wish this place was local. It is really, really good. I love their banana split! My wife likes graham central station. Nothing like going for ice cream at an ice cream stand on a warm evening.

We love Handel's-maybe too much 😁 This ice cream is the most flavorful treat you'll experience near or far.

Their ice cream is sooo good! You'll have to stand in line during the summer but it's very worth it. If you are obsessed with chocolate get the chocoholic chunk, it's overwhelmingly great.

I've eaten ice cream in basically every city I've been and no on has topped Handel's. Anyone who appreciates ice cream, especially unique flavors, has to make a trip over to Handel's if they are in the Indianapolis area. Worth going out to the way for and waiting in the long lines. Best ice cream I've come across in the... More

Great ice cream. We really like to go here, but it seems like it's taking longer and longer each time to get through the order lines. My daughter like cotton candy We will be back

Very energetic service and great flavors to choose from. The best part was, at least the ice creams that I tried had the touch of freshness and proportion of sugar was perfect. The quantity was great for the value you paid !

Handel's on a summer night is perfect. Lots of favors. Wonderful creamy ice cream. You will not be disappointed. Do be warned... There is often a line.

Great place for ice cream! The Snappy Turtle has whole pecans in it! Yum! Be prepared to wait in line though, but it is worth the wait!

All out door seating. A wide variety of flavors. I really loved the pistachio. Very chunky, old school pistachio. Right in the middle of what you want to do in Fishers.
