Very good

Ritter's has an excellent product line. I've had their shakes, sundaes and cones over the years. They call it frozen custard and it is very rich and creamy. Tonight we had two of their flavors of the day, Heath bar and butter pecan and they were both very good. Ritter's was not intended to... read more

We love Ritter's! Our three and five year old girls beg us to go there. There's something special about the creaminess of the custard. My favorite is the Snickers concrete mixer, and my wife usually gets one of the flavors of the day. Sometimes we take our dog with us, and get her a "pup cup." She loves it, too!

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
