“Yummie!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Best BLT in town and milkshakes. Love the grape milkshake! Staff are very friendly and the line moves quickly!! It is a small town must see and experience.

“Must eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tony's Ice Cream is caught in a time warp! The dining area looks the same as it did back in the late 1950's and early 1960's... and that's a good thing. Specializing in fresh ice cream they are famous for their huge milkshakes! Grape is one of the favorites!

“Diner reminiscent of days long gone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

The chocolate milk shake was plentiful and delicious! The hotdog was average, nothing to write home about. The ice is well known, and I completely understand why--it's delicious! A must try when in the area.

“Very good ice cream.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

You get A LOT of ice cream so you might want to start with just a kiddie cup. Lots of choices to pick from. Parking can be an issue but it's a Gastonia icon.
