Best Ice Cream In Dallas?

cagirlintexas Oct 7, 2006 12:17 AM

I want to thank everyone to your responses to my other posts. I am 5 months pregnant and new to Dallas so I always need help. I was wondering if anyone knew where the BEST ice cream was. I would also settle for a good frozen custard place cause I have never tried that. I am willing to drive to settle a craving.
Thanks again,

    Pacuigo- multiple locations including west village, plano and soon Northpark mall. Great gelato and ices. Flavors change weekly.

    Henry's-in plano. Great creamy high fat goodness.

    Harry's-knox Henderon and 75. Great custard and hot dogs.

    Perhaps this will help


    Im a dessert guy--2-3 with every meal if I can.

      I hear good things about Henry's (Plano) http://www.henryshomemadeicecream.com/

      For frozen custard, Harry's is the place to go (Dallas, Knox and McKinney): http://www.wildaboutharrys.com/

            Milwaukee Joe's! http://www.icecreamjoe.com/
            They have 2 locations in NE Tarrant County: Southlake Town Center and Harwood & Norwood in Hurst. There's also one on Inwood in Dallas, and it has frozen custard, too.

            AWESOME, creative flavors of the day, and a regular menu that pleases, too! Today's flavor is White Chocolate Oreo...

              Go to Old Town Creamery in Plano, they have some unique Indian flavours like (Almond, Pistachio, Lichee etc)

              For Frozen Custard, try Sheridans at Preston and Campbell.

                I'll second the recommendation for Old Town Creamery.

                Another vote for Henry's Ice Cream here. I haven't been able to stop by their actual store yet, but I've stopped by their booth during the two times I've been to Taste of Plano and I loved it. Also can't go wrong with Paciugo and it's easy to find since there are locations everywhere.

                Sheridan's: There's nothing special there, don't go out of your way for their mediocre custard. I also say this since I've been spoiled by a place in my hometown (Katy, TX) called Ritter's Frozen Custard.

                I'll make sure to check out Old Town Creamery sometime.

                  Sheridan's at Preston and Campbell. Best custard in town. Promise. Just don't get their hot dogs.

                    And I would highly recommend avoiding their custard and ice cream, too.

                      Kirk, Were you able to try other flavours at Old Town? They have recently introduced a few more Indian flavours...tasted Falooda and Anjeer and were pretty good...Their Mango is awsome..reminds me of Alphanso Mangoes that i used to hog every summer while I was back home...

                        I haven't been back recently, but will definitely have to check out some of the new flavors.

                      Personally, I think Braum's has the best ice cream. My favorite flavors are butter brickle and peppermint (Peppermint milk shakes are good too). Nothing beats their single dip strawberry sundae with almonds. Also, they have the best milk.

                      For ice cream at the store, if you are new to the south, Bluebell's cookies and cream ice cream is really good.
