I’ve heard so much about Carl’s from my sister who grew up in Fredericksburg and now lives with me in New York.

Carl lived up to my sisters hype. Was delicious. Very thick and tasty. One of the best ice cream cones I’ve ever had.

Carl’s is a must do if you are in Fredericksburg, VA. The ice cream menu is the customary one you would expect at an ice cream restaurant. What is so special is the history behind the building and equipment. Carl’s is synonymous with Fredericksburg and is almost as famous as nearby Ferry Farm. Which is noted as George Washington’s boyhood home.

The best place to end a great night with a classic custard shake or cone. It’s a tradition and is well worth any line. Price is reasonable as well.
