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.

Ted & Wally's was recommended to me by a friend who is originally from Omaha. He said that it was the best ice cream in the area It truly was excellent! The flavors of this homemade ice cream change daily. I will return on a future trip!

Ice cream was great. Try the fat Elvis. I never would have thought of that combination but it was really good. They have different flavors all the time. We will definitely go again.

Best Ice Cream in Omaha. They now have two locations downtown and Benson. The flavors change daily. The best flavor is cinnamon grape nuts. Sounds crazy but it is amazing.

I hit up Ted and Wallys for Ice cream and fun on weekends. It's especially fun to build you own toppings.

Ted and Wally's has amazing fresh ice cream! They always have the popular flavors, but do experiment with others. There is always a new flavor to try!
