This is rated the #1 spot in DeKalb and for good reason. Only 3 custard flavors to choose from but you couldn't care less when you realize you have over 50 topping options to choose from. Yummy!

Ollie's is easily the best frozen custard stand in Dekalb County. Their sundaes are heavenly, and you can't go wrong with their butter pecan if they have it. This place is definitely worth a stop!

This is the best frozen custard I have had, from anywhere, EVER! This is where my parents took my family, and where I take mine.

Ollie's is excellent frozen custard! There is nothing else like it; it is one of a kind! Made fresh daily, smooth and creamy! Ollie's makes many different flavors of custard and all are available in pre-packaged cartons, or try their daily flavors. My favorite is Mocha Chip and others in our family love Black Raspberry. The lines prove their popularity!... More

Love the custard. So many flavor options / combinations. There was a long line, even on a cold night, but it was well worth it.

Yes you will have to wait in line, yes it could be hot outside, and yes it's just custard but... trust me you will be happy you went. If anything generates a line that snakes around a building now-a-days, it must be flippin fantastic and this custard is just that! They serve vanilla, chocolate and a flavor of the day.... More

Great custard, especially love Sunday special, butter pecan. 😋I've been getting custard at Ollie's since they have been open, over ten years ago. They have one daily special with vanilla and chocolate always available. Packed custard is available with many delicious flavors!

Ollie's is great. Lots of different choices. Prices are ok.. the only bad thing is the wait in line. The line goes to the back of the building. It goes by fast though. Love it!
