A co-worker recommended this place and we just happened to be driving by one day, so . . . who can resist good ice cream? They had several choices of homemade ice cream, making it hard to choose. The kids working the ice cream counter were all very nice, answered our questions, and offered advice. Other workers even came over... More

Quaint could be a good word to start this review with. I was immediatly spotted as a non local, and it did not help that I said it was my first time here. Everyone automatically started giving me advice from the chocolate Milkshake to how heavenly Gastonia is, and I should move here. I do love small town USA. My... More

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
