Lots of flavors. Always fresh. Friendly help - mostly high school and college students. An institution in town. We need more independent shops in Lexington! Please support Rancatore's!

Great place for ice cream with a good range of flavours. They also sell by t e tub to take home for later if you prefer., There are tables to sit at and a water fountain you can fill your waterbottle or they supply cups.

This is by far the best ice cream on the planet! we've had ice cream in every major city that we have travelled to and this is the BEST! not sure how they do it or what their secret is but nothing compares to Rancatore's! it's impossible to recommend a favourite flavour because everything is amazing. It's home made, not... More

Not as good as its reputation. Quality is mediocre and the prices are high. Some of the ice cream I've had here had crystallized. Disappointing. Staff is not interested in their jobs.

Judging by the number of people going in and out, we knew this was a place we needed to try! So glad we did! The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and the ice cream was delicious!

Description
"rancs LOVE!" These two words have come to define who we are as a company and as member of our communities. "rancs LOVE" defines how we treat our team of local kids, our partners and our guests. "rancs LOVE' is what goes into every cup, cone, cake and coffee we make. "rancs LOVE" is that beacon in the sky that drives us to constantly improve, to make great ice cream and to bring happiness to your day. "rancs LOVE" drips down the side of the cone and we scrape every last drop out of those cool lime green cups. "rancs LOVE" is that slurping empty straw sound we all dread. come by and see "rancs LOVE" for yourself
