Kids and adults alike flock to this popular ice cream shop. The thick shakes are a meal unto themselves.
Some of the best ice cream in the world! You need to go and give a high five to the staff there for making such a great product.
Gone way downhill over the past few years. All the positive reviews on this website are non-existant at today's amys.
Best Ice Cream in Houston – First discovered Amy's when we lived in Austin. They are the best! So many good flavors, I can't name them all. Even their hot fudge is homemade. I've tried other places, but now I'm spoiled and keep coming back.
Best Ice Cream in Houston – Hands down, this is the best ice cream in Houston. Too bad there is only one location, but a lot of restaurants serve their ice cream with dessert (Barnaby's Cafe, Mission Burrito, Star Pizza, etc). Mexican Vanilla is an all-time favorite, but it is always fun to try the other flavors. MY favorite funky flavor - Avocado!
Better than the others. – Amy's Ice Cream is impressively good. I'd give them 5 stars, but I can count on one hand the number of times I've gone there and waited less than 15 minutes in line. Even on slower nights, the wait is ridiculous. They have 2 people on the line, and usually they're working the register, too, which takes even more time. The treats are unbeatable, but the staffing is poorly thought out. I do, however, wish they'd have my favourite flavour more often. The hibiscus flower is incredible, and the Guinness ice cream is a close second. Following closely behind are their Shiner ice cream and whiskey ice cream. Despite how much I HATE waiting, I continue to go there instead of any of their rivals...plus it's just across the street from the always delicious 59 Diner.
Best Icecream EVER! – I was introduced to the ORIGINIAL Amy's during college and have gone to the Memorial location several times ... this location falls between the two. It still have the creativity and flair of the original but without the intangibles of the Austin location. But the ice cream is still on point & that's the most important part! Amy's has seasonal flavors to try & most taste like the name. My all time favorie is Mexican Vanilla w/ peanut M&Ms. Try it & you'll be a believer.
Youngsters and the young at heart flock to this campy parlor for great ice cream and good times. – The Scene
Although the carnival atmosphere of the Shepherd Plaza club scene has faded, it's hard to overlook the two humongous Holsteins standing atop this place, offering a giant cup of coffee to passersby. That rather astonishing sign, garnished with purple neon, keeps perfectly with the kind of campy "Pee-wee's Playhouse" decor and ambience you'll find inside this Houston version of the longtime Austin ice-cream emporium. There's even a photo booth where you can memorialize your visit (when it's working). It's popular with the teenage set too young to hit the many 21-and-over venues nearby.
You can get better coffee, if that's your objective, but the ice cream is generally very good--the Mexican vanilla is dangerously tasty. There are several mix-ins available, so diners can create their own custom combos.
It's the coolest, man... – I've been going to Amy's for about 10 years now and I can say, withouth reservation, that it is the best ice cream in Houston. They have some standard flavors (Mexican Vanilla, White Chocolate, Sweet Cream, etc.) but they have 4 or 5 flavors that change every week, so theres always something new to try. The servers are creative and fun, though perhaps a bit startling to those unused to the Montrose/Shepherd styles. I definitely reccomend it to everyone, but it's particularly fun for kids and casual dates. And you can always go to Star Pizza (directly across Shepeherd) first and finish up with Amy's after.
Best Ice Cream in town! – They have really fun flavors, and all the people that work there are really funny and nice. I really recommend giving Amy's a try.
best ice cream in town – This place rules.. the mexican vanilla with strawberries is classic.. They also have new flavors all the time that are good. The Shiner ice cream was pretty good.. can you believe that? Shiner Boch ice cream!
