Near the heart of any great city is a place locals love to share but never want to be discovered. In a town like Sacramento where summer evenings can stay in the 80's after the sun goes down nothing is better than the local ice cream parlor. Gunther's has been a landmark for years with it's iconic neon soda jerk... More

You can tell its great by the number of people there, just about any time of day. At Halloween time be sure to try the pumpkin flavor, its like cold pumpkin pie.

Almost anyone in Sacramento has a "Gunther's Memory". Mine is of my Dad taking me there for a very special treat as a kid. The incredible animated neon sign of the scoop of ice cream being flipped into the cone was almost as good as the actual ice cream. They have wonderful seasonal flavors with abundant local fruit, peaches, etc.... More

The ice cream was yummy. Not very many seats, but it was cozy. When the weather is hot this place can have a long line with no seating available. I had some of the warm food on a previous visit and I was not impressed with the soup and sandwich. I just order a cone or a shake now. The... More

Yummy ice cream! The line can be long on hot days, but well worth the wait on a hot August night! One of Mom's favorite treats.

Gunther's is a Sacramento landmark - it has been there forever - I've gone there from the time I was a child and I'm a plus 60 person now! Their ice cream is the best and the quality cannot be surpassed. Wheather its an ice cream cone or a sundae - you can't go wrong with a stop at Gunther's

Wow, 30 + flavors and combos. Served all kinds of ways. Pile it high or have a kiddie cone. Bon bons, too. Take home or eat there. In summer, prepare to see a long line out the door. But the line goes fast. Seating indoors and out is limited. Seasonal, they have egg nog. Just delightful.

My favorite is the sundae with coconut ice cream covered with pineapple topping, whipped cream and a cherry. It's my own decadent pina colada! The grand kids love to make up their own concoctions and the surroundings of an old time ice cream parlor.
