Been eating at this restaurant for years! Love the ice cream sundaes and homemade whipped cream too! Burgers are great. Recently had their ice cream cake for the first time and it was awesome. Recommend highly.

I had never been to Itgen's legendary Ice Cream Parlour before, so I was totally looking forward to it. As excited as I was, that's how disappointed I became. I am so sorry, but I cannot pretend this place was clean. It was blatantly filthy. From the old grease spots on the menu to the decomposing floor, I did not... More

A great gem in the town of Valley Stream. Homemade ice cream and hometown favorite meals. The service is great. Will be a family favorite to end the day,celebrate a win or smooth over a disappointment. My children love this place! Alyssa is so sweet with all and always has a welcoming smile. The sundaes are awesome.

This place has been around for many years. The best hot fudge I ever had! There is no place around that compares to Itgens.

I have been going to this place since I was a teenager and remember the "Ayatollah Komeni Screwball Sunday" That is a long time. Ice cream is home made as their chocolate. Light eating, good also for late night. A non pretentious place. Very reasonable.

Great choice of yummy food options, but make sure you leave room for some of their homemade ice cream.. Reasonably priced, but make sure you bring cash since they don't accept credit cards.. But don't let that deter you from stopping in when near by.

We've been going to Itgen's for dinner and/or desert for over thirty years. (Yes, that's back to the Walter days!) Their ice cream is outstanding. You won't regret the trip.
