Kids love Rita's. Great ice flavors and consistently add new flavors. Custard is great and can get Gelatis which combines both. Frequently give coupons which helps as can be pricey.

They say custard...I say ice cream. Yummy! There is a large selection of ices and soft ice creams. Always delicious! I'd say it's the best!

The custard at Rita's is sooooo good. Could eat a pint in one sitting. My kids love to go there a lot and the choices of the ice are plentiful. Just love to go there and gorge on custard!!
