It seems like the selection gets smaller every visit, and for the price charged the quality is just not there. Flavors are typically more kid-friendly, and odd (think neon-colored Sour Patch type flavors instead of natural fruits). I love a good Italian ice with REAL fruit, and this just is not it.

We don't go here a lot, but we enjoy it when we do. The icy treats are very good. Always a nice crowd there. A pleasant alternative to a regular ice cream joint.

It's gotten to the point that it's only good 1/3 of the time. Today, for example, I ordered a kid's cone, vanilla chocolate twist custard, with chocolate sprinkles. On a good day, it comes with a lot of frozen custard encrusted with sprinkles (which you have to pay a set extra fee for regardless of cone size). On a frequently... More

They have frozen custard and Ices. Pretty good for cooling off on a hot day. This location is near my work so it is convenient during a hot summer workday!

This little ice store is an oasis in the desert. Leslie & Jerry, the owners, are wonderful, caring business owners who take their store seriously. Rita's participates in local fundraising events, including Alex's lemonade Stand. They keep their store and surrounding area impeccable. They have little picnic tables behind the store which are always clean and shaded. And we all... More

Always a great selection at affordable prices. They have your old stand by flavors like cherry and chocolate and crazy new flavors like banana creme and lemon meringue pie. They also have custard and all the candy toppings. The people serving you are very nice and will let you try samples of any flavor you want.
