A DeKalb county icon...totally lives up to the hype. Silky, creamy custard in so many delicious flavors. Well worth the trip!

Ollie's is great. Lots of different choices. Prices are ok.. the only bad thing is the wait in line. The line goes to the back of the building. It goes by fast though. Love it!

Great ice cream. Long lines. Very busy and popular place. They have very large portions so know before you order

This is our favorite place to go for "ice cream." It is really custard, super creamy, and many flavors--we have our favorites! Peanut butter chocolate nut and black raspberry come to mind first. Sadly, they are closed during the winter, but usually open near the end of February.

If custard is what you want, this is your place. During the summer months there is always a big line. The custard is the best around. Daily flavors are offered along with chocolate and vanilla.

They have the best flavors of frozen custard and lots of toppings to choose from. You can get sundaes, shakes, or cones. There are usually long lines to order, especially if its a warm day. There is only outside seating at Ollies.

Outdoor ordering; first come, first serve, expect long lines on nice days, opens in March & closes at the end of October. Serves cones, malts, shakes, many toppings, a daily flavor of custard. Fun place to eat these sinfully delicious concoctions & enjoy the people & nice weather.

Ollie's is consistently delicious. Pre pare to wait in line with your neighbors. Many combinations of custard and toppings making deciding difficult. Generous toppings on creamy goodness. My favorite is the caramel cashew sundae, my husband's, strawberry hill.

This is the BEST custard shop around! This custard shop has only outdoor seating and is not open during the winter season. It's worth the stop.
