Putz's Creamy Whip

2673 Putz Drive, Cincinnati, OH - (513) 681-8668

How many restaurants deserve to have the name of the street they are on changed to match the restaurant name?? This is one of those gems, an institution in Cincinnati, Putz's Creamy Whip. How do they make soft-serve ice cream taste different than everybody else's? They use old-style dispensers that are 70+ years old, and they just don't make 'em that way anymore.

Great ice cream/shakes/malts/sundaes, excellent "school burgers", incredible foot long coneys (ask to have them cut it in half for you - it's not a sign of weakness, rather a sign of experience), and a fun, family atmosphere. To top it all off, the prices are from a different era, and that's a good thing. You'll wonder how they can provide this kind of quality, service and atmosphere at this price. And then you'll make a note to come back again and again and again...

Turtle sundaes are big throughout the Midwest; and there are few better than the one Putz's serves in a plastic cup.

Looking at this lovely hot caramel sundae, I would say my nephew chose wisely.

What's not to like about a combination of chocolate cake, hot fudge, vanilla soft serve, and whipped cream? Don't forget the cherry on top!

Putz's has been so popular for so long that the street on which it's located has been renamed Putz Place.
