I have been going to Tony's since I was a child. I live an hour away but it is worth the drive. BEST ICE CREAM ANDROID BEST SHAKES. Always say no to a lid on your shake and they top the shake with a huge scoop of ice cream.

The scene: After driving from Atlanta to Charlotte, decided to get some dessert as a treat to myself after several hours of dull driving. The experience: Apparently this place goes back to the 1950's. Looking at the exterior and the interior, it definitely screams retro, and not necessarily in a good way. Some might find it charming and rustic, I... More

Very tasty hotdogs and legendary ice cream made on site. Other food isn't anything to wrote home about but still a quaint place to come in on a weekend afternoon and enjoy

When you entering into the restaurant/ice cream bar ' it is like going back in time. The atmosphere is like a dinner and the food is 'Home' cooked. Really liked their hamburgers (had them l the way) as well as their ice cream. If you visiting, you have to at least have one lunch here, if not... I think you... More

Still serving the best ice cream you ever put in your mouth! The line is always out the door....people will wait! Very clean.....family owned business so the recipes haven't... More

Family run business with lots of character and characters! Old time milkshakes, malts and cones. It can get very busy and you will understand why. Our family review, the food is not as good as the ice cream.

In case you want to know what a real milkshake tastes like, Tony's is the place for your discovery of everything great in milkshakes. I can't brag enough about that, and of course the ice cream is good also.
