The best ice cream ever. I was so happy when they opened one in Katy, within 15 miles of my house. It's a must if you have never tasted their frozen custard. It's my understanding that the Ritters in Franklin is the original!

Ritters is wonderful in all ways, they have great customer service, excellent custard treats and a clean place to eat. But this is not a restaurant. It is an outdoor ice cream (custard) building with some picnic tables set up to eat at. We would highly recommend this if you want cool treats, but don't go here for a meal... More

Ritters originated in Franklin, IN in the late 1980s and is now franchised in several states. The wonderful owners are John & Bonnie Ritter. Vanilla & Chocolate custard are still our "go-to" flavors, but The Turtle Somet'in and Fresh Banana are great too. The flash frozen containers are a good buy if you plan to carry-out and I don't hesitate... More

I'm a local emt and there is nothing better than ritters in the middle of a tough day. Everything is delicious. Even the old standard vanilla is amazing.

The flavors and selection were good. The prices were high. If my family or friends visit me in Indiana, I won't take them here due to the high prices and the custard lacks the "WOW" factor.

The flavors are amazing and you'll never want to settle for regular ice cream again. It costs a bit more but nothing is better than handmade every day.

My very first time visiting a Ritters and it was a great experience. The young lady that took our order was very helpful explaining their menu to us and she told us the most popular orders. I tried the Pumpkin Cheesecake Sundae. OMG! it was soooo delicious! My husband had the Peanut Butter Mountain....wow...it looked really good, too! He loved... More

THIS PLACE RULEZ. I really like to eat ice cream and somedays I'm all I REALLY WANT SOME ICE CREAM. So then I go to Ritter's and get some. And it's pretty good. And by pretty good I mean the best in the whole UNIVERSE. So buy lots of it.

They even serve low calorie custard. All of the flavors are fantastic and draw a large crowds in the evenings in the summer!

I don't eat sweets often because I try to control my carbs, but when I do, I make sure it's for the best! And Ritter's qualifies. The original Ritter's Frozen Custard is in my home town. How lucky am I?
