My wife and I have been on an ice cream expedition lately, canvasing the Chicago area to discover the best ice cream parlors. Even in cold and snowy weather, it's hard to pass up a tasty chocolate sundae or strawberry milk shake or a bowl of butter pecan or chocolate chip or coconut ice cream or rainbow sherbet. So our...

This is a wonderful ice cream parlor with reasonable prices. You won't find better ice cream and you won't be disappointed. Stand in line, but it moves fastT

If you are looking for a great choice of excellent ice cream come here. Very friendly service and huge choice of flavours. The ice cream also makes great shakes. Our second visit in three days - well the temperature is in the high 60s in early November

I loved that the line was out the door on a beautiful Friday night, and yet we were served super quickly. The ice cream is very good - a bit pricey, but that's expected in Andersonville. Had a vanilla cake ball, too: can't recommend that. But the ice cream is great! Comfortable places to sit. Nice place! We'll return!

We had gone out for tacos for dinner and rather than get a dessert from the restaurant, we came by George's Ice Cream & Sweets. Though it was crowded on the inside in the seating areas, there was not a line for the ice cream or the candy and other baked goods. We tried two one scoop ice creams -... More

After a disappointing dinner at Cantina 1910, we stopped here for dessert, and were pleasantly surprised. Ice cream here is the main star and it is sourced, I believe, from the Chocolate Shoppe in Madison, WI. So many flavors, so little time (because other customers are waiting!). You may have a wait as it can get busy, but well worth... More

The staff was nice enough to offer a taste of a few flavors, so I was happy to do so because none really wowed me, but they were fine. The key is ordering hot fudge on top, which isn't super fudgy, but good. If I have a criticism, it's that the three chocolate flavors I tried had very little real... More

I generally go to Oberweis to satisfy my ice cream cravings. So reviewing George's is more of a comparison than its own review. The scoop sizes at George's are huge and far larger than Oberweis. The prices too are a little better for how much ice cream you are getting. I enjoyed the ice cream at George's and would definitely... More

There is likely to be a line formed but it moves quickly. Sugary treats: ice cream (including soy based), cakes and doughnuts, chocolate malts and coffee drinks and much more. Atmosphere is like hard candy, brightly lit and dissonant. With all the sugar this is definitely not a place to relax but it's a good time if you're with friends... More
