Vic's Ice Cream
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (March 2009)|
Vic's has maintained much the same atmosphere that it had when the store opened in 1947. The black and white checkered floor tiles, blue jeans and tucked-in shirts worn by employees, and menu items all date back to the store's inception during the Truman administration.
Vic's carries 29 standard flavors of ice cream, and during the year several seasonal flavors become available.
Vic's is one of many local dining venues popular with Sacramento's politicians. Vic's is a favorite dining location of lifelong Land Park resident and California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides, his daughter Arianna, and her friends Hannah and Carrie. Vic's was also a favored dining location of the late United States Representative Robert Matsui and his wife, current United States Representative Doris Matsui.
In the Sacramento Magazine's 2005 Subscriber's Choice Dining Awards, Vic's received 3rd Place in the Best Ice Cream Parlor category.
