the ice cream is fantastic wish the phone in order process was just as fantastic. Not sure what the benefit is because my stage 4 breast cancer little sister took advantage of the Phone In Order option and was told her order would be 20 minutes. when she arrived she was told she still had to wait in line. the server was not able to explain the benefit of calling in an order and made my baby sister stand in line. However, a customer wanted to purchase a Gunthers t-shirt and she was afforded expeditious service and was authorized to cut ahead of other customers in line. not only was this a slap in the face to my baby sister but to be insulted in front of other customers when an employee told her, "If I was on shift I would have taken care of your order the moment you walked in the door". That response was even more insulting and displays lack of empathy. I highly suggest the Phone in Order process be revisited because if it's not beneficial to your customers I don't know how it could be beneficial to your business.

Fun place to visit. We enjoyed our ice creams outside on the plastic patio furniture. The line was our the door and parking is hard to come by. But, it was good dessert.

This place does it old school and often has a line out the door. From their classic sign to their home made goodness still served from stainless steel ice cream tubs, it is all good. They also offer a selection of other treats not to be missed. Inside seating is limited, so this place tends to be more crowded and popular in the warmer months.

I just moved from the Bay Area into Gunther's neighborhood, so of course I had to check it out.'s smooth, sweet and creamy but the flavor is bland. I'm using Haagen- Dazs as my comparison.

Great ice cream shop! Similar flavors to Vics, but I liked it a smidge better. Definitely worth the wait; the line looks long, but they moved through it pretty quick.

Love this place. Great flavors, relatively quick service. Its a popular place so definitely expect a wait. It's worth it, though.

Favorite Ice Cream in Sacramento, I always bring some home. I also like the fact they have tables outside so I can bring my dog along after spending the day on the river.
