For dessert or a snack, try their gelato. It's not the biggest selection of flavors but enough to keep people happy judging by their clientele. The consistency of their gelato is done right and you'll find the extra bit you pay for a waffle cone worth it. Enjoy.

We had been told by several folks on the Riverwalk that we had to try Justin's because they had the best ice cream on the Riverwalk. We did try it. I had gelato and my son had sorbet. Both were fine... average... but 'nothing to write home about.' I would not go out of my way to seek it out... More

We always make Justin's part of our trip to San Antonio. Locally crafted unique flavors such as Horchata, Lime Inna Coconut, and chocolate hazelnut means we can have a different flavor every night. High quality creamy ice cream and sherbet served by friendly staff. What's not to love?

comparable to Ben and Jerry's quality. A buck lower in cost and a little easier to get to from the River walk. (B+J's is up on the street).

This little shop is directly on the Riverwalk. They have a large selection of flavors. Take a walk and treat yourself.

I'm a real Ice Cream junkie, I can never get enough and have bought ice cream all over the world. Justin's is a disappointment. When I looked in the case, my first thought was "Where's all those vibrant colors you usually see? All I saw was row after row of bins full of pale, washed out pastel colors. If you'd... More

You will find many choices of ice cream, sorbet, and gelato at Justin's. It's also next door to a souvenir shop which was handy for those must have trinkets to take back home. There are scores of great choices and they all look delicious. There were only four of us so I can only report that four of the flavors... More

Several favors to choose. We had ice cream, but they also have sherbets as well as some other choices. Nice to sit by river, eat your ice cream and people watch!

Definitely worth popping in if you feel like ice cream or gelato! We had gelato... the coconut and rum flavors were amazing and the bourbon vanilla was tasty too - more vanilla flavored than bourbon though. Will be back!!

Thank rachel_nz15
