My daughter and I were just on 2nd Street between Menaul and Candelaria when I had to do a double take. Itsa Italian Ice is back! They've only been open since July 12th.

We walked in and indulged ourselves with great Italian Ice. They have a full menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, Frito pie, corn dogs, gelati, ice cream, and of course, Italian Ice. Didn't get lunch, but the choices for the ice were many - lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, bluemoon, lime, grape, cantaloupe, banana, and tangerine.

I'll be back for lunch very soon. The service was fantastic! This is the perfect stop for a hot summer day!

I remember the Itsa truck rolling through the neighborhood all summer long when we were kids... What was it we used to order, a mix of all the flavors?? A cyclone? A suicide?

God, I grew up on that stuff. A particular summer comes to mind when I think of Itsa Ice. I was in the summer camp/rec program at Zia Elementary (eons ago!) and every Wednesday (at least that’s what my memory recalls), a councilor (probably a HS student) would walk us kids to the Itsa Ice place on Lomas and we would indulge in yummy, sugary, cold Itsa Ice! For the past couple of years, the Itsa truck has been making their appearance at different car shows. That's when I learned they were going to reopen the store. Yay!!

Interesting! I knew the owners of the previous one, so I'm curious if they've started it up again, or if it's in the hands of new owners. I'll have to ask.

Anyone remember the Snow Cone Lady?

Here's a map to their place - 215 Phoenix NW.

Dang, this is exciting news. Wish it was still on Lomas, though!

I saw it as I drove down 2nd Street a couple of weeks ago on my way to a meeting. I stopped in on my way home for a hot dog and a gelati. It was great! Adelita's right; the service was fantastic. The couple who own the place are so nice. I hope they do well in this new location.

Ohh, I think my sweetheart would absolutely love this. I'd better take him out for a burger and an icy treat. Thanks for posting about this!

All right - in our neighborhood to boot! Don't have to drive to the Univ area anymore - like when there were up on Lomas near Washington. It could be on our way home from school -- on these 90 degree July and now August days.

That looks like a neat place. Gonna have to take the wife there. Thanks for posting it!
