I love that we can always count on the staff friendliness here and they are super fast! The custard and ice treats are so good that we've been customers for years. long lines always, but they go fast!

Not returning here. Custard machine was broken so couldn't get what we wanted. Place could be bumped up a little with a refurb. Woman working there was nice.

Love Rita's frozen custard cream, but now they are not using eggs so it's not a great as it used to be. Cute little ice cream shop, with a high tech check out computer. A coup,e of chairs and tables out front.

Ritas is all about consistency. The choices of various ices and shakes is expansive enough for anyone to find that one special thing. I'm sticking with Lemon! Always a winner. And nice people too.

Perfect on a hot day. Many wonderful flavors of Italian Ice. Often something new to try. They are happy to give you samples. Hard and soft ice cream too. Something for everyone in the family.

Thank Richard J
