Next - frozen custard - several flavors of frozen custard (like ice cream only creamier) available plain or 'twisted' (two flavors twisted together). As if... More

It is always great to go to Rita's for a special treat or just to have something cool and refreshing on a hot day. They are always friendly.

Summer is almost over,& time for 1 last visit to our Sykesville family, topped off with a visit to Rita's. Staff was very willing to allow us (a group of 8) to taste some of their new flavors. As a result, we bought more than we do at some other Rita's outlets elsewhere.

Rita's in Eldersburg is what you expect from this establishment. I usually go weekly in the summer and the staff is always very friendly and willing to offer samples and suggestions.

by far my favorite place in eldersburg, by the time spring comes I am chomping at the bit for some rita's. The ice is always sooo smooth and the custard in creamy as can be. I go there at least once a week and the owner knows me by name - very nice people. highly recommend Rita's in Eldersburg.
