I am from Philly. Rita's water ice originated in Philly. It was a rite of spring. I know spring will be happening no matter what the weather is like once Rita's opens. I am a traditional water ice eater--no custard, no cream ices, just regular plain water ice and I LOVE it. It is not like a snow cone if... More

Their Cream Ice is smooth, silky and full of flavor. What's not to love? This Rita's is NOT on the boardwalk near Bally's as mentioned in an earlier review... this one is on the White Horse Pike (Rt 30) in Absecon, on the way to Atlantic City. Their Coconut flavor is awesome!

With it's great location on the boardwalk to the value for what you pay for, Rita's is a must. It is a great place to stop, and has the best Italian Ice out of anyone I know. Plus it's not hard to miss right by Bally's and all of the excitement. I want to go back!
