Seasonal ice cream stand specializing in dipped soft-serve cones. Cash only.

Our Review

Any soft-ice cream joints will sell you a Boston or a banana split. But this Lincolnwood stand makes a unique claim: all its ice cream is kosher. And the ice cream coming from the left nozzle in the machine closest to the west wall is Cholov Yisroel, an even higher dietary standard. Dairy Star is strictly walk-up, but there are picnic tables where you can dig into your sundae. It’s the perfect place to go after 18 holes at the Bunny Hutch, a nearby miniature golf course with a similarly retro design. It closes for the winter, usually around the third of October.
