If you want the true flavor of hand made ice cream, go to Tony's. I have been eating Tony's ice cream since I was a little girl and find that there is nothing to compare, not ColdStone, any of the high end grocery brands, NOTHING comes close to their excellence. Family friendly and true to their roots of home town... More

Service here is wonderful! Food is great. There is something for every taste. Hot dogs, hamburgers and other creative sandwiches. And no other ice cream store can hold a candle to Tony`s. Try it if you are in the area. Nothing fancy, just good food, good service and awesome ice cream!

Go to Tony's for a delicious sandwich or have a refreshing ice cream sundae. They have a great selection and always fast, friendly and efficient service. They have been in business for a very long time.

Ice Cream of many flavors. Ice Cream made to you whim. Ice cream made the old fashion way. Milk Shakes to die for! They are fast even though there may be a lot of people there. Food is also available for the quick stop.

We've frequented Tony's for 40 years as teenagers and now adults. We've taken our grandson there now to carry on the tradition.

Tony's is a Gastonia land mark. When we first moved here. We would get directions "Go past Tony's for 3 blocks and turn right" rofl. The ice cream is made right across the street so its the freshest you could get anywhere and the NC hotdogs are worth the trip. Awesome.

Tonys is a gastonia icon. The food is great and the ice cream and milk shakes ate the best on the east coast.
