    Hey cpyxp!! welcome to roadfood. The site looked pretty interesting. I can't understand how an ice cream only places manages to make enough $$ to stay open in an area where the summer is somewhat abbreviated.
    Also, have you had the "green cow"? I've never heard of one; can you describe it?

      Mmmmm... Ollie's. I swear they were closed during the winter months when I was going to college at NIU in DeKalb. Mmmmmmm... college.

        cpyxp, is that in the strip mall on the south side of town, on the east side of IL 23? I remember finding an ice cream place there 4-5 years ago, a few blocks south of the Amerihost Inn, and having a snack.

        The funny thing is, I have one map each of Sycamore and DeKalb, but guess which map has Oakland Drive, where Ollie's is? DeKalb!

        P. S. Is Tom and Jerry's Restaurant still around?

          Ollie's has some of the best custard I have ever had!!! I think that Tom and Jerry's is still open. I know that thay have opened in Rockford now.

            Tom & Jerry's has been open in Rockford for some time now (over 10 years, pushing 15).

            And Ollie's location is more "DeKalb" than it is "Sycamore". Its address may be Sycamore, but I doubt it would even show up on any Sycamore maps.

            I was in DeKalb this past week.... amazing how much has changed in just the 8 years I've been away.
