Forget DQ or anything else... this is the place to go for the very best frozen custard in the Indy area. Their Italian Ice is beyond compare. Incredibly tasty and refreshing. So glad we finally checked this place out!

This is the best frozen custard ever! It's an old time ice cream stand with outdoor seating. Cement tables & benches under umbrellas. Love the fruit flavored custard, my favorite is lemon. Tried the vanilla for the first time-delicious, the best I've ever tasted. The chocolate is excellent also. Wish we had a Ritters in Colorado, my mouth is watering... More

You can request specific flavors and they will make them with one day's notice. Some of the worlds greatest flavors are plain chocolate, chocolate malt, turtle something, cookie dough. Open all year long is great except it means I have to step up the workouts in the winter... ;-) Love this place.

Custard is good, but if you're craving ice cream, it's a completely different consistency. The selections here are great, but it'll cost you. Nice outdoor seating and friendly staff.

it is hard to beat Ice-cream of any kind but Ritter's does a great job. The custard is rich and creamy and you can get a bunch of toppings. You can find them all over and the staff that work there do a great job getting the product to you on a hot day. Take some time out and enjoy,... More

This was our go-to spot when we lived in the area for a frozen treat. It was delicious, and our 6-year-old loved the worms and dirt option!

It has always been a joy for me to go here in the summer as a child, and I still love it, because you get to eat amazing frozen custard---outside. It's great to be there on a hot and humid summer night, or a sunset, because it's a great moment to remember. The staff is great and friendly, and I... More

There is nothing that is worth the price of admission that means you will hold a specialty names frozen treat over t o me upside down.

I was disappointed in the custard I got. It had clumps of ice in it and did not have a fresh taste to it at all. I may have just got a lemon but I wished I had not spent my money here and went to Culver's.
