This place had fabulous customer service with a smile, entertained our questions about their business (how long they had been around, when was the anniversary month party, etc...) and the ice cream was great also! Perfect on a warm spring day!

Read several reviews and had to come try it. When we arrived there was a line outside the door. Literally over 50 people were there. It is a small shop but a much beloved institution. It has been around since 1940. They have sandwiches that sounded good but I only saw one person order food and not ice cream or... More

Wow this is the best ice cream I have dreamed for a long time since I was a child. They have so much flavors to choose from and they all great. I had a pineapple coconut milk shake and I had it as a sundae as well. It was out of this world!!! Love ittt!

Stopped here because I happened upon it and I'm glad I did. Rum raisin was the flavor of the month and it was rich and creamy and flavorful. Well worth the stop, especially at night with their old fashioned sign

Gunther's is a must stop for anyone who enjoys real ice cream. The staff is friendly, and people pleasant even though there is frequently a long line. The ice cream is made in small batches on site, and is incredibly good. I'd like to say I have a favorite, as I try to stop every time I am in town... More

What a fabulous place! I got a sundae, and it was fabulous! My friend brought me here on my first day in Sacramento, and it made a great first impression!

When traveling we attempt to locate the best ice cream in town. OMG!! Gunther's ice cream is right there with the best I've had. Creamy smooth and flavorful. When one tastes ice creams such as Gunther's you realize that B&R (even with 31 flavors) is not even close to what ice cream should be. First time at Gunther's but will... More

You see this menu board full, I mean, FULL, of mouth-watering treats! Really hard to choose! Whatever ice cream concoction your heart desires, go for it. Even vanilla is good! Outdoor seating is great. Inside could get a bit tight with people packed in at busy times. Street parking is available, but good luck. Down the street or behind the... More

All home made deliciousness. All five flavors we tried were just like ice cream used to be. All had great flavor, not just suger and milk. Can be a long line at peak times, the line was in the street when we went. Will definately go back when in town.
