Rita's is an all time fav of mine. Love the italian ice as well as the gelato and the custard. Perfect for when you want something cool and filling on a warm day!

“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Love the staff here, always accomodating and smiling. Have a great selection of flavors. Also have several people on hand to wait on customers if it gets really busy.

“A Hot Spot in the Warm Months”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is a major Frederick hangout. People and their dogs love it here and there are many varieties of sweet and gooey goodies served to satisfy every possible taste. The italian ice (which I had never tried) is really good too if you're watching your fat or dairy.

“Get back to basics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

This Rita's never has a "normal" flavor like vanilla, chocolate, lemon...always something funky. I have never experienced this at any other Rita's. I have even mentioned it when I've gone to other Rita's and they say they always have the staple of vanilla and chocolate. Come on...Baskin Robbins has 32 flavors and one is always vanilla. I often go here, look at the selection and leave ticked without buying anything.

Perfect treat for a hot (100 degree) summer night: watermelon ice with vanilla custard. Can't go wrong with rita's.
