Pros: Has been around since 1926, so you know its good

Cons: Can be a little messy, but honestly that is half the fun

Instant smiles are spontaneous when this spiral rainbow appears outlined in a sponge cake of chocolate or sun yellow. It is my first choice as a special treat for my guests. Sometimes I need to remember to treat myself to something

Pros: *Thumbs UP* Tasty ageless treat, plenty of parking and picnic tables, good prices and great smiles :>)

Cons: Although they move quickly, be prepared for long lines some summer afternoons and early evenings.

I remember going here as a kid. My parents would drive out here for a cone on a Sunday afternoon. My sisters and I thought this was an adventure, far from our Brighton Park home. It was a treat for all. I still go at least 4 times a year

Rainbow Cone is a desitnation dessert haven! The ice cream is great (the Palmer House is divine), and we usually run into neighbors. For those of you who come from out of town and are "fearful" of the neighborhood -- don't be! Although

Pros: FUN CHILDHOOD MEMORIES WITH GRANDFATHER

There is no place like it and no substitute. Went there as a child, brought my children, go there whenever we get to town, hope to move back soon as it was a part of our life. The ice cream is excellent, especially the Palmer House ice

The ice cream was FANTASTIC!!!!\r
Although it was our 1st time in Chicago, that was a must go place... we saw it on Food Network. That ment it HAD to be good.\r
But a mile from it the neighborhood was really dirty... and not very pretty.

The Original Rainbow Cone offers a mish-mash of assorted ice-cream flavors dominated by orange and lime sherbert, followed by butter pecan, pistachio, and chocolate. While surely colorful to look at these flavors, in my opinion, would be
