We met friends at the dairy on a Sunday afternoon. There is a great variety of flavor. Ran into 2 other couples we knew. Great ice cream.

I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE the UNL dairy store. No ambiance- it's on the east campus of the University of Nebraska. No singing for tips- it's staffed by students. No disappointments- their ice cream, made on campus, is fantastic! You never know what new flavor a student had invented! On one visit, they had grape ice cream! In addition... More

This is not just a ice cream store it is a landmark. If you are in Lincoln it is a must in Summer. The ice cream is always good and rich in flavor. Enjoy!

They don't have the cows close by but they do get all ingredients locally and make it onsite. Even have windows to watch if they are in process. ice cream was great as we got a couple of flavors. Worth a stop

Stopped in with the family on a hot Saturday evening. The staff was friendly and efficient, and they definitely serve up value for your money. The ice cream had great flavor, but was a bit too rich (high fat content ice cream) for my taste. The consistency was very silky and smooth, and not too sweet. Overall, a high quality... More

It's 95 degrees outside so a stop to get some ice was a must. They had 14 or so ice cream options and the ones we picked out were so yummy. We saw the equipment in the windows and also picked out some cheese and meat to bring home.

The server had a few problems dealing with a bus load of 30 stopping by for ice cream but she handled it OK in the end. The ice cream was the creamiest and had very good flavor. It was a hit!!

We stopped in on a cold day to try the excellent ice-cream we had heard about while on a college tour. It did not disappoint. We had one scoop and two scoops. Be careful, the scoops are huge. I think 1 scoop was almost a pint. The 2 scoops was definitely more than a pint. And of course it is... More

We have visited this location several times and each time they amaze us with their great tasting ice cream and the wonderful flavors/mixtures they offer. It really is good ole fashion ice cream! Oh and their "Jiffy burger" is the bomb :)

Thank Brenda S
