We usually hit this Rita's a couple times each month during the summer. Lately I have been enjoying the Juicy Pear Misto. They take a waterice flavor of your choosing and add in a custard, and blend it up. Very refreshing on a hot day....More

Rita's is located within walking distance from my home so we visit it often. My girls like the fact that they can get milkshakes, water ices, blendinis or sundaes. They are reasonably priced and usually if there is a line, it moves quickly.

Rita's waterice has great waterice and icecream. They always have new waterice flavors and they're always good! Can't wait for it to open up again for the warmer seasons.
