  • Their Cinnamon Ice Cream, which I have not tried in years was FANTASTIC!!!
  • The peppermint ice cream is why I keep coming back!!!
  • The ice cream was good but there person working was very rude.
  • Best hot fudge in the world! Had many others around the country and the answer is always the same: "Not as good as Petersen's!"
  • Petersen's is one of the oldest and favorites of Oak Park residents. Real creamy ice creams.
  • Some of the best ice cream around! Dont miss out on classics like Cinnamon and Peppermint Stick
  • Old fashioned indeed.
  • Ice cream for sure
  • Ice cream is da joint
  • My favorite so far is the Mack Island Fudge - think of cookie dough, but bigger and slightly less crunch.
  • Awesome flavor selection
  • Delicious! Maca chocolate!
  • Good strawberry soda :)
  • Many think their turtle sundaes are the best in the world. I've eaten many over a few decades, and I agree!
  • The green mint chocolate chip is an old-school, Martian-green classic.
  • Peppermint stick and pumpkin are so worth it in this oak park icon. Wish they'd bring back the old "carousel sunday" that brings back memories!
