“The hot fudge makes all the difference!”

Rancatore's Ice Cream and Yogurt
Ranked #1 of 5 Dessert in Lexington
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $1 - $20
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

“The hot fudge makes all the difference!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Homemade ice cream is flavorful dense and frozen hard the way it should be. The hot fudge is homemade too and that makes everything just that much better. I also had plain strawberry ice cream in a cup which was excellent.

Odd greeting: An employee was just finishing cleaning the outside of the glass in the entrance door when we arrived. She stood up and walked right inside without greeting us or holding the door for us (which is still a common courtesy).

“Inventive Ice Cream great spot for tourists”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

After a day at The Minute Man Visitor Center, Concord, Walden Pond ect.... My kids just wanted ICE CREAM! I did a quick search Trip Advisor and drive to Lexington. Rancatore's is located in Quaint little Lexington, just a block from Lexington Green, where the Revolutionary War started. Their Ice Cream was AMAZING!! The chocolate was loaded with great and lovely miracles, the kids had flavors like Salted Caramel, Gingersnap Molasses, and my favorite was Ginger! Ginger ice cream! WOW!! We loved this place!!!

“Great ice cream spot”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Good place to go if you are touring Lexington. They have the standard flavors and a lot of funky adult type flavors. Sundae's are excellent as are frappe's

“Ranc's ranks”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Rancatore's is the only ice cream place in Lexington Center. The ice cream is delis, but the serving sizes are small. Prices are expensive too.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

A great ice cream shop, with innovative flavors, old favorites, and great quality. We'd go more often if it weren't so many yummy calories!
