We had Amy's Ice Cream twice during our stay in Austin. The line was always long but it was definitely worth the wait! Chocolate was YUM and would recommend the waffle cone!

Really enjoyed the unusual flavours here including the combo of additional items. Watch out for the special tricks of the servers - they will throw your ice cream up in the air and behind their backs like a regular cocktail server!

This is great ice cream. The fat content is high so it is smooth and delicious. Worth going off your diet. The menu is large and something to temp everyone. This can become addictive.
