Gunthers known for its ice cream and freezes, has been around most of my life. Definitely has the creamiest most delicious ice cream ever. And the most refreshing freezes. But...I think they have the best chocolate covered bananas I have ever tasted. I think the salted nuts adds a nice contrast to the sweetness.the bananas are big, never puny, thick... More

The place has been a landmark for over 50 years. Lines can be long but it’s worth the wait. They have whatever you want – ice cream, 50/50 freezes, milkshakes, malts, bon bons, chocolate covered cheesecakes, nutty cones, and so much more.

Gunther's is classic ice cream. They have a huge selection of flavors and dessert treats to choose from. The line was pretty long but moved fairly quickly. Our sundaes were delicious and definitely hit that sweet spot.

Although the ice cream taste good, they don't give you much compared to of course Leatherbys. They are not stingy for scoops of ice cream... Service at Gunther could be a little faster!

The difficulty finding a place to park coupled with the line you'll see winding out the door might make you think twice about stopping, but only if you've never eaten ice cream here. The line moves fast. There are tables inside and outside or you can take your cone to go. There's a reason this place has been a Sacramento... More

Good Old Fashion Ice Cream....Home Made...so good. You will not be sorry nor disappointed. I try not to go to much due to watching weight. But, it is a good treat.
