Fresh made waffel cones filled with the best ice cream in town. Be sure to leave the server's your change, their smiling faces deserve it.

I drive by often and try not to stop but my car won't listen. Every trip is something new. A new flavor I never thought I would like but becomes an obsession. Look for coupons in mint magazine as well as school coupon book.

I grew up going to this ice cream place, and all nostalgia aside, it's a delicious place to grab dessert.

I've never had an ice cream I don't like here. Fave is Key Lime Pie. The graham cracker crust inside is the best! I've only eaten ice cream here, never had any of their other items.

Love the real flavor and the constant change of flavors. Be prepared to wait in line but well worth it.

Took the kids for an afternoon treat. Had a wide range of choices from ice cream to shakes to just about anything frozen. I had a small chocolate shake. Chocolatey and not too sweet. Creamy. Only downside is there is no inside seating, only outside.

All kinds of yummy ice cream concoctions, milkshakes to sundaes or just a waffle cone of your favorite flavor. check out the Mint magazine for coupons and don't forget the punch card to rack up a free ice cream. in summer...

I freaking LOVE Brusters! They probably service the best ice cream in Knoxville. I have ordered almost every thing on the menu and I have never had something that was bad. The cones are great and I love their sundaes! The smells coming from the building are amazing! There is no indoor seating but during the summer that just adds... More

I ordered a small peanut butter crunch with butterfinger in a wafer cone, and was surprised at the size of it - they gave a LOT of ice cream for a small. I enjoy ice cream that has a lot of "stuff" in it ti chew on, and this was great - every bite had crunch, and it lived up... More
