This place is the perfect way to end your week. I went on a Sunday night with a friend. The weather was perfect, the place was packed, the choices were pretty much unlimited. We decided to sit outside to enjoy our Mango Fruit Freeze's. You will definitely see happy faces, hear interesting... read more

Just a good old fashioned ice cream parlor! When my family and I are craving a sweet treat we know we are headed to Gunther's! My personal favorite is a 50/50 with mango freeze and vanilla ice cream...delicious!!! Everything is wonderful but like all good things prepare for a little wait (yes even in the winter).

Great ice cream, iconic business and great location. Always busy so be prepared to wait in line but well worth it.

Great Ice Cream, When you say "Gunther's" that is all you have to say, some people complete your sentence and say Ice Cream Parlor. Folks that ICE CREAM is that good. Just say "Gunther's" and watch some people and their mouth will begin to water.

Been coming here since I was six- and that's a LONG time! Nothing has changed and that's a great thing! Old time service and quality makes this a Sacramento institution. The lines can be long and the seating limited but don't let that deter you from some outstanding ice cream confections! The original booths and decor are a time warp... More

Three booths inside, wooden - with initials carved in them, a free water jug and little cups, and homemade ice cream flavors to die for. Lots of outdoor tables on the sidewalk where you can gossip with your neighbors. They also sell sandwiches, soup and baked ice cream goodies. Famous all over Sacramento.

Its the place you go in the late Summer afternoon/evening to eat icecream with friends and neighbors. In my opinion the icecream is the best.....yah .
