Review of Rita's Ice

Rita's Ice
Ranked #5 of 12 Dessert in Frederick
Price range: $3 - $10
Description: "Best of Frederick" Frozen Dessert and the COOLEST place in Frederick to taste Summer. Come by and try our famous Gelati's made from our signature Italian Ice, made fresh on property every single day, and #1 Zagat rated Old Fashioned Frozen Custard. Our ices are vegetarian, a lot are vegan, and most are also Gluten-Free! After rave reviews, we've expanded our line of unique ALL-NATURAL Italian Ices! Nothing artificial...just pure happiness on a spoon! Friendly staff and reasonable prices make Rita's of Frederick a family favorite all summer long. Samples are always free :) See you at the windows! We take food allergies seriously and make every effort to help prevent the crossover of allergens into other products. However, it is important to understand that through preparation and production, cross-contamination may occur.

Love the staff here, always accomodating and smiling. Have a great selection of flavors. Also have several people on hand to wait on customers if it gets really busy.

“A Hot Spot in the Warm Months”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

This is a major Frederick hangout. People and their dogs love it here and there are many varieties of sweet and gooey goodies served to satisfy every possible taste. The italian ice (which I had never tried) is really good too if you're watching your fat or dairy.

“Get back to basics”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

This Rita's never has a "normal" flavor like vanilla, chocolate, lemon...always something funky. I have never experienced this at any other Rita's. I have even mentioned it when I've gone to other Rita's and they say they always have the staple of vanilla and chocolate. Come on...Baskin Robbins has 32 flavors and one is always vanilla. I often go here, look at the selection and leave ticked without buying anything.
