Stopped in this past week for a chocolate swirl frozen custard cone. Simply delicious! Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Portion size was bigger than expected for a regular cone and the price was very reasonable. Will definitely go back on our next visit.

This restaurant was extremely busy when we went, but we received excellent, friendly, and quick service. Everyone enjoyed their ice. I think the coconut was the best. My kids liked Swedish Fish, mango and grape. Since they were VERY sweet, I would probably get coffee flavor next time.

Rita's never disappoints! There is usually a small crowd of people around Rita's in the busy season, but they are worth the wait. For a while there really wasn't anywhere to sit and enjoy your treats, but they've recently added some benches off to the side of the building. They offer an array of frozen treats and change their flavors... More

It was in the upper 80's to lower 90's during our visit, and a nice cold Italian Ice was just the thing help cool us off on a hot day! Great flavor choices and friendly staff!

Reviewing a chain, I don't think there's a point to covering the pros and cons of Rita's in general. It's good stuff all-around. Personally I'm a fan of the Italian ice. This particular Rita's seems to move the line along fairly well, but if you decide to go on a busy night, make sure you're either with people you like... More

One of our go to places when the Granddaughters are here. They love the slushes. It is sort of hidden on the hill going up to the cemetery.
