Ted and Wally's has the best ice cream around! Of course they have all the traditional flavors but why have that when you can try their own custom blends??? The last time I visited, I had the Guinness ice cream. It was outstanding!

Every time I visit Omaha, I find a way to visit Ted & Wally's because it's a great place and it has some of the best ice cream ever. I like to try non-dairy ice cream when I can and Ted & Wally's is the standard by which I gauge all others. It's simply The Best. Rich, creamy, flavourful, delicious!

Homemade ice cream with unique flavors. They were mixing the ice cream in front of you! A must place to stop and get ice cream.

This is our second visit to Omaha in three years and so we decided to visit Ted & Wally's again. The line was not as bad as last time. The ice cream was good, but the flavors were odd and limited. For the price, we were not as impressed. The Vanilla Bean was disappointing. The Dutch Chocolate was good but... More

A popular ice cream joint on a sunny day with a rotating selection of flavours served in a selection of cones or tubs. There is a small amount of seating inside and normally a long queue, but you get to to see the mechanical ice cream makers to the right of the counter. Not the cheapest ice cream, but good... More

Found this place with an online search and glad I decided to try it out. All of the ice cream is made there and the ice cream makers are right there, up front and center. The ice cream was tasty and my coworkers got shakes they really liked. It's in a repurposed old time gas station, so the environment is... More

Wanted ice cream. Walked out the front door of my hotel, and Ted & Wally's was directly in front of me. Coincidence? I don't think so! I tried a scoop of "Hava Nagila" and a scoop of Chocolate Caliente. Both were amazing and unique. The staff was helpful, speedy, and in a good mood.

Ted & Wally's is a staple of Omaha's Old Market and at times the line stretches out the door and into the parking lot. They rotate through different flavors but you're sure to find something.

The atmosphere is a bit eclectic and minimal. The ice creams, sorbets are home made. You might even see the large old-fashioned freezers running. The product runs from really good to incredible. They also make shakes, etc. For a real, refreshing summer drink try a sherbet "freeze."

My brother was in town for the weekend & we took my mom to the Old Market for the first time. We just HAD to take her to Ted & Wally's. My husband knows the owner & he insisted we try it a couple years ago....we became hooked.
