“Long lines but worth the wait.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I tried T&W on a summer late night and the line was out the door. Crazy when you think that it was close to midnight. But the line moved fairly quickly and the chocolate peanut butter fudge malt was worth the wait. I am a huge ice cream fan and love trying out the mom and pop places like this as opposed to the chains. It is worth trying out with so many diifferent flavors being offered.

“Tasty homemade delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Creative new flavors
Daily. Limited parking but worth a short walk. Two ice cream machines greet you on the right just after you enter. We enjoyed black walnut, red raspberry yogurt, pecan peach Honey and Stilton, and Concord grape. Will definitely return.

“An Omaha Institution for Good Reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great ice cream in a great space with great people serving. Top notch all around. I only have two reservations. First, they don't take pains to stock the standard, comfortable selection of flavors, which might be disconcerting to some conservative patrons; that said, this also makes it the perfect place to shake any gourmet ruts you may have fallen into. Also, avoid going in the late afternoon if you're going to eat in; the sun comes through their ample windows at a harsh angle. That said, I really cannot recommend the place enough. After 27 years of their ice cream, I still cannot get enough.

“Classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

This has become iconic in downtown Omaha. You really can't visit the Old Market without taking a stop at Ted & Wally's. It has that great old timey dive quality to it, with delicious ice cream and amazing flavors with your choice of combinations for a very reasonable price. Go! Go now!

“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The ice cream is excellent, but the lines are soooo long in the summer. It's worth the wait, though! I also think they could do with more seating inside.
