Their ice cream is super good, they also have a ton of different flavors. They sell old fashion root beer as well. There is usually a long line, although they move it very fast. Seating is very nice, indoors and outdoors.

Always GOOD ice cream! Staff very helpful. It's a small store, bu they process you quickly. Wait time is not very long. They give samples, so you can make a preferred decision.

Farr's ice cream has been around for decades and though you will have to wait to order on some warm summer nights as the line ends outside. The wait is worth it!! Also available by the pint and half gallon. Enjoy a "Farr" better treat!

My husband and I stopped by and what a pleasant way to end our union station visit. Bill had the orange dream and I enjoyed the cashew caramel ice cream. The young lady was very sweet and took good care of us. We will definitely stop if we make it back here again .

I have great memories of coming here with my family when I was just a kid. This place has not changed one bit since I was a little girl. It is a relatively small place, with just a couple of tables, so be ready to be packed in like sardines in a can! They get so busy you have to... More

I love their ice cream! I worked there in 1970's and there were over 40 different flavors. Even more flavors now with dairy free options available. The 50's style atmosphere is charming.

The best ice cream parlor in Ogden. Plenty of flavors. Cones, Shakes, Sundaes, or ice cream cups and more. So good it's hard to decide.

I have visited Farr Better Ice Cream located at 286 E 21st St, Ogden, UT 84401-0408 since I was a little girl... then when I was dating, and even now as a grandma, I still love to go there, and get a double scoop of Ice Cream - They have tons of different flavors, so you cannot go wrong!

The atmosphere is great for an old time ice cream place. The ice cream is about the best you can get outside of Texas and the size of the cones are generous.
