Get a cone or a shake...you won't be disappointed. My favorite flavor of ice cream is Almond Joy! The shakes come with a large scoop of ice cream on top!! Love this place!

I visited here for lunch with my family. For lunch and ice cream we paid less than $50. The food was good with something on the menu for everyone. The ice cream was just as good. The service was friendly and quick.

My husband and I both had a craving for ice cream, so we decided to check out Tony's. I had strawberry, and my husband had peanut butter ripple. We both loved the ice cream.

My husband and I went there for a snack and encountered a world of goodness. We got 3 hotdogs and a order of hot wings. It was terrific. I was surprised at how the wings were so crispy and everything was homemade. Down to the chili on the hotdog. We were so impressed that we are going back for breakfast.... More

Tony's ice cream is creamy and delicious. There are so many great flavors to choose from. Breakfast and lunch options are available here at extremely reasonable prices. I have never eaten here though since I go strictly for the ice cream goodness!

You have to try the banana split here. Large enough to share for two people and the staff is very friendly. If you are in the area, stop in, you won't regret it!
