The Plush Horse
The best ice cream I've ever had is at this little local ice cream parlor in Palos Park, IL (southwest suburb of Chicago), The Plush Horse. Their ice creams taste like the cream was fresh from the cow. They give you gigantic scoops of it too. What they call a single most places call a double or even a triple. I don't recommend their milkshakes though. Overpriced and sub-par.
