Great place for ice cream and the decor is delightful. We liked that a "small" could be split into 3 flavors. You MUST visit the restroom to see the vintage tin boxes. Bill is a delightful conversationalist and even the other customers were friendly. Love this place!

A nice little specialty ice cream shop in a strip mall, I Scream has a good selection of ice creams and reasonable prices. They also have movies in the parking lot during the summer and NFL Sunday Ticket during football season - I think it's the only non-bar in Albuquerque that has it. Well worth a visit.

Great local place with awesome ice scream and toppings. Plenty of old time games and antique items to look at. They play old movies on friday nights outside on a blow up screen. The people there are so friendly and fun to talk to.

Okay, so a road warrior from the suburbs of Chicago walks into an ice cream parlor in ABQ as the locals use. Then the delights just started rolling in. The owner is a transplant from the Chicago area so he made himself a friend right away. Then the ice cream...a nice selection of flavors from BLUE BELL! The ice cream... More

This is a fun place for kids and adults alike. There is a play area for kids, a family seating area and an adult seating area. This is a ma and pa ice cream shop you don't want to miss. Free samples, good ice cream (30+ plus flavors and 30+ toppings), first topping free. Don't skip this gem!

Lots of toys for kids to play with and mediocre ice cream. What's not to love? Very clean and friendly service too! Just be sure to follow the rules that are posted everywhere!

I don't normally review places that I frequent but we have been going to this place since my kid was young. It is the most unique place. Walls are filled with fun things. There are toys (and the keep them clean!) that kids can play with, board games and books for the older crowd. The ice cream is great -... More
