“Creamy, Rich, Hard Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Choose from dozens of homemade flavors such as peanut butter explosion...a sinful combination of peanut butter, Reese's pieces and chocolate ice cream or try a tried but true flavor such as maple walnut. This one had huge chunks of walnut with the flavoring of New England maple syrup.

Take any two flavors or two of the same and order a sundae. You will get a choice of 1 wet topping and either whipped cream or marshmallow.

It is worth the trip on the Orange Line to Bus #32. Ask to be dropped off at the Dunkin Donuts stop just before #1231 Hyde Park Ave. The ice cream parlor/bowling alley is right next door to the local police station...can't miss it.

“Dutch Cholocate Tastes Like A Tootsie Role”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Ron's is a popular place. However, the ice cream and sorbet I had tasted poorly. The Dutch Chocolate tasted like a Totsie Roll and the Raspberry Sorbert tasted like bubble gum. I was disapointed by my experience especially since I had heard great things about Ron's Gourmet Ice Cream.

“Great ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Funky location in a bowling alley but all the ice cream is made at that location. Our favorite is the mocha almond. It has an amazing number of almonds in it. Friendly staff and quick service. It is next door to the police station so your car is quite safe despite being in a so-so neighborhood.

It's been 8 years but I can't forget that coffee madness ice cream - brownie chunks, oreos, almonds, and a fudge swirl. Mmmm!
