Editorial Review of Scooter's

Tired of ice cream? Try Scooter's, Chicago’s premier frozen custard joint, which bills itself as "The best ice cream you may never have had." Open seven days a week through Labor Day to accommodate that hungry summer crowd, Scooter's offers the basics (chocolate and vanilla) and a more unique daily flavor of the day, ranging from strawberry swirl to Belmont Avenue (Scooter's version of Rocky Road).

Scooter’s also offers Italian ices, sundaes and blended custard treats called Concretes, in which custard is mixed with candy, fruit and more. New to frozen custard? If you try it and like it, the eatery has pre-packed pints and quarts so you can keep on enjoying that creamy goodness at home. Scooter's also offers a variety of frozen custard-based cakes and pies for summer celebrations.

Average cost: <$10
