Most people know Rita's has a wide range of ices but there are some really outstanding ones such as their pear. They are made fresh and served in reasonable sized cups. Great for an after dinner dessert or an afternoon delight. In the fall their hours are cut back and way back in winter so it is best to call... More

Treated ourselves a couple of times to Rita's while in Rehoboth Beach. My son loves the gelatos and was quite pleased to show up on a day that blue raspberry was an ice option. My only disappointment was that the only custard flavors available were chocolate and vanilla, as one of their custard machines had been taken to the state... More

All the flavors are great in the blender with your favorite "beverage" to make a great refreshing summer sipper!

We love Rita's, and the ice here was fine. But the selection of ices was relatively small compared to other Rita's, and that was a mild disappointment. Still, any Rita's in a heat wave is worth a visit.

I am a huge fan of Rita's but when I came to this one about 30 minutes ago, I witnessed an employee accidently stick her hand in my son's cotton candy ice. Instead of scraping the compromised product she proceeded to sell it to me. In shock, I asked for a different one which was made and also sold to... More

We went here with my son and his family. 3 generations enjoying the goodies. I really enjoyed their Galati (sp?). a layered mixture their frozen custard and water ice. It would be great if someone would open a franchise out here in Long Neck.

I stopped at this Rita's to get a treat. I picked up a root beer flavored ice. It was very tasty. The employees were friendly. The store was clean. My only complaint is that it was a little more expensive than the Rita's stores I've been to elsewhere.

For the best frozen custard in the world, try Rita's. Richest, smoothest, most flavorful of then all. Rich hot fudge to top it off.

Must stop at Rita's. Classic, cooling Italian Ice. Bold flavors that would stand up to an added shot if you are so inclined.

Kids went outlet shopping so Mom and Dad went up highway. Found Ritas. We had seen heading south to lodge. Very conveniently located. Store very clean. All three employees very friendly greeting us coming in and when leaving thanked us again. We had sugar free tangerine which was awesome. Very refreshing too. Hard to find nice tasting frozen ice type... More
