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.

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.
