We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ice cream. So, of course, we had to visit Tony's. Ooooo!!! What an experience! They have the BEST ice cream I have ever tasted! Prices were extremely reasonable & a huge variety selection. We will definitely be back!!

It was more of a drink stop instead of an ice cream stop for me, but the place was very cute and a step back in time. It was clean and the service was nice, and they had so many different old time favorites in...More

Want to step back in time? Stop by and visit Toney's Ice Cream. The Ice Crème is the same as it was 50 years ago, Delicious. The burgers and hot dogs bring back memories too. The atmosphere will reminded you of the GOOL OLD DAYS....More

I like my shakes a little sweeter. Hotfudge cake was good and burgers were good but the chili tasted like it is from a can

We stopped in for milkshakes and had a fun time deciding what flavor we wanted I settled on the lemon and it was delicious. Had the feel of a cafe from times gone by.

Homemade ice cream that keeps people coming from miles away. Tony's offers many wonderful flavors including the new SunDrop flavor. My favorite flavor is chocolate. My husband loves the humongous "Banana Splits".

This is an old style icecream place with a ton of great flavor and a grill that is just as active as the icecream section. A great spot to get a good mingling with the locals.

So even writing this review makes my mouth water! I love their hot dogs better than anywhere in the world! Also their shakes and banana splits are the best!

If you pass thru Gaston County on I-85, this detour will not disappoint! Locally owned- should be visited by Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives!! Unusual but not weird flavors. Banana Pudding is awesome!
