Ice cream was great. Try the fat Elvis. I never would have thought of that combination but it was really good. They have different flavors all the time. We will definitely go again.

Best Ice Cream in Omaha. They now have two locations downtown and Benson. The flavors change daily. The best flavor is cinnamon grape nuts. Sounds crazy but it is amazing.

I hit up Ted and Wallys for Ice cream and fun on weekends. It's especially fun to build you own toppings.

Ted and Wally's has amazing fresh ice cream! They always have the popular flavors, but do experiment with others. There is always a new flavor to try!

This place blows away all other ice cream shops I've been to. The flavors are varied, incredibly rich and delicious, and change often. The lines are often out the door. A visit to Ted & Wallys is a must if you're in the Old Market.

As someone born in Ohio where 2 of the top ice cream parlors are located, I was a bit disappointed in the overall experience. Now living in Chicago, our friends from Omaha took us here for an afternoon treat. My husband and one of my kids are allergic to dairy so usually it's not an issue to find sorbet at... More

Need a bit of creamy goodness? Where else can you see ice cream being made in the old fashioned way and have a flavor you have never had before? The flavors are often a little different than I have had before and that is a good reason to try this place out.

Homemade ice cream in creative flavors with mix-ins served in generous portions. Sometimes I drive across town just to get their vanilla with oreos! Don't be put off by the line on a warm summer night - it's worth the wait!

I don't know what the deal is or how they do it but the ice cream is amazing here. My family has been enjoying it for 15 years.

For a place that advertises 1500 flavors, it was surprising to find only four the night we visited – two types of chocolate, a vanilla, and candy corn! The ice cream is not bad, though I've had much better in places across the country, and certainly in the Midwest. It lacked the rich texture and creaminess I've had in good... More
