I didn't part-take in one of their colossal ice cream desserts but I did get a medium sized (which was big) of their Amond Crunch and it was simply delicious!

I’d always heard about this place from friends that had visited. Took the kids (10 and 7) for lunch. We kept it basic, kids burger, corn dog bites, and a regular cheese burger. It was a Saturday about 1:30, no wait to be seated at...More

This is a nice place to go. their ice creme is great and impressively presented. However, their entrance can at times be very limited with manpower. The food is OK but just average. Again, the ice creme is what we go for because it truly...More

My husband & I have out of state friends that look forward to coming here for the ice cream. A junior size goes a long way. You can share it or take out the left overs to have a second dessert night at home. Yum!

Was recommended to this place by a supervisor. If you haven’t been to a great ice cream place in a while, please go here. We had lunch (make it small otherwise no room for desert), then dive in for your desert. We lived every minute...More

Whether you visit Vacaville or Oakland, Fenton’s is an institution that’s been around for decades and is one of the best out there. The portions are huge for standard sundaes and can easily be shared, though you may not want to. Their vanilla is super...More

Fenton's was started back in 1894 as a delivery service and soda fountain in Oakland, CA and has been an icon for ice cream since then. It was always a treat to go there when I was young. Of course there was also Moo's ice... More
