Tony's is a Gastonia land mark. When we first moved here. We would get directions "Go past Tony's for 3 blocks and turn right" rofl. The ice cream is made right across the street so its the freshest you could get anywhere and the NC hotdogs are worth the trip. Awesome.

Tonys is a gastonia icon. The food is great and the ice cream and milk shakes ate the best on the east coast.

Tonys has the very best ice cream I have ever tasted. The flavor is so rich. Their Grape is too die for. Love the atmosphere and the staff. I have been coming to this establishment since I was a little girl. Love, love love it.

It's all good but I think the peach is the best. Real peaches in the ice cream. If you want the most ice cream for the money, order a milk shake.

A home town favorite. If you are driving thru Gastonia, NC, make it a point to exit and find Tony's Ice Cream. Not onlyet the BEST ice cream, start with a cheeseburger all the way, chili mustard and onions, if you want to be a local

Been a favorite of mine for a long time. Nothing like Tony's ice cream. Especially on a hot summer day. But I do visit year round.

Great Ice Cream in a dining area that hasn't changed much since the place opened. They also serve food from a simple menu. Not fancy at all, but good.

Tony's is a legend in the area for ice cream. Multiple flavors made on site. Hot dogs are great. Made to order. It gets crowded in the evenings and in weekends.
