Everyone in Sacramento knows and recommends Gunther's. There's always a huge line, but they are pretty quick. There's so many flavours, that it's hard to choose: that's why we went often. They have the strangest stuff (for an European): birthday cake, cookie dough and so...More

Wonderful ice-cream w/ a changing list of ice creams and sherbets. Old funky booths or tables outside - what could be better. A long standing competition between Gunthers and Vic's Ice Cream on Riverside. Both are wonderful.

The sign alone is a good clue as to the tone and character of Gunther's ... a neighborhood classic that is in the same league as Vics (in Land Park) ... Old School favorite ... you know just how good that ice cream will be...More

Even in December the lines are long on the weekends. And it was worth the wait. While Leatherbees is much larger. Gunther's Ice cream is superior. And no one wants them to move. The line and the crowds are a part of its charm.

I come here often. I would go more often if not for the regular long lines, sometimes out the door. The ice cream is made in house. To save money the trick is to get the pints and they last longer.

Yummy freezes and half/half freeze/ice cream. They offer many flavors at reasonable prices. It is a Sacramento institution.

I have been a Gunter’s customer for over 60 years. Their ice cream is fresh and always delightful. I have my favorite flavors but I really enjoy their monthly special flavors. They are usually unique and favorable.
