Best ice cream in Andersonville

No. 1: George’s Ice Cream and Sweets, 5306 N. Clark St.

No. 2: Forever Yogurt, 5309 N. Clark St.

No. 3: La Michoacana, 5645 N. Ashland Ave.

  • JW resident since 2006

    These lists are ridiculous. Are there any other ice cream shops in Andersonville? Why not create more lists, like:
    Best Pie Shops in Andersonville
    Best Record Stores restaurants in Andersonville
    Best Swedish Bakeries in Andersonville

  • Ha ha. I agree. The only ice cream shop is George's.
    I didn't know Forever Yogurt sold ice cream.....weird. We used to have two yogurt shops but Forever Yogurt forced out the small mom&pop yogurt store that was by In Fine Spirits. But back to the topic....Ha!

  • I have some Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Ice Cream in my fridge. Is that good enough for 4th place or maybe even enough to squeeze me into 3rd?

    They do train but then management leaves. If the people there are careless and are neglectful they can't control that except fire them. I'm sure they will turn this around. Their non perishable items are still good to purchase. Just the hot foods I wouldn't buy, for awhile at least.

    It's counter-intuitive, but really makes sense when you think about it...
    The safest time to eat at a restaurant is after they've re-opened following a failed inspection. After failing, the establishment makes an effort to thoroughly clean so that they will pass the follow-up inspection. Then over time, some may revert back to their old ways.
    Still, you won't find me eating at a place that has failed an inspection. So glad we have this data available.

    Katie,they eat small pets only when very hungry. There are lots of their natural prey available so your cat has probably not been a casualty. I pray you get your 'little monster' back safe and sound.

    they're supposedly coywolves. I saw one standing in Calvary cemetery about 3 weeks ago, in the morning. They try to avoid people and hide as much as possible it seems.

    I kinda wish something could eat some squirrels around here
