I had some custard with Reese pieces and my husband had a strawberry cheesecake shake. My custard was deliciously creamy and my hubby loved his milkshake. He can be hard to please, so I was impressed.

We stopped here for a treat after seeing the Jenny wade house. We both got frozen custard twist cones. Very good frozen custard! Very rich and creamy. An inexpensive, cool treat!

Stopped in this past week for a chocolate swirl frozen custard cone. Simply delicious! Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Portion size was bigger than expected for a regular cone and the price was very reasonable. Will definitely go back on our next visit.

Rita's never disappoints! There is usually a small crowd of people around Rita's in the busy season, but they are worth the wait. For a while there really wasn't anywhere to sit and enjoy your treats, but they've recently added some benches off to the...More
