Tasty Custard

Just vanilla and chocolate in a fairly plain cone. But very tasty, solid vanilla and chocolate flavors. Crowded but line moves fast.

So glad we stopped here during our visit to Waco. We ordered mint chocolate, coffee toffee, caramel pretzel and dirt and worms cyclones. Every bite of them all were eaten. Delicious!

We like deserts, but try to watch our in-take. But hey you only live once, right? Katie's Frozen Custard is a great place to stop, enjoy the outdoors under the patio covered area and picnic tables. Very Family Friendly and talk about Fast Food, Cold Drinks... They have it all including handmade flavors of whatever you can ask for in... More

Delicious custard! It is a little pricey, but perfect for an occasional treat. My kids loved the whoa whoa burgers, too. Perfect size for little ones.

$28 for three kids and two adults . Everyone ordered small custards with minimal toppings. Not impressed with the portions for the money. Staff was unfriendly and didn't want to answer any questions about their products.

My wife and I stopped here twice during our weeklong stay in Waco. They have some of the absolute best frozen custard we have ever tasted. I have to agree that their prices are pretty steep but their custard is wonderful.

Katie's is a Waco landmark. Their sundaes and ice cream are great. They always create special flavors for each holiday. My favorite is the pumpkin spice around Thanksgiving

Happened on this place a decade or so ago, Custard is among my cannot pass by items, and this is Custard, not soft ice cream being called Custard. I go out of my way when in the area to stop by Katies, I dream about her vanilla custard, chocolate also doesn't suck, but the vanilla is worth going a few... More

I don't live in Waco, but when I'm in town I'll make a special trip to Katie's. The frozen custard is as good as any I've had anywhere in the country. I highly recommend the Texas Turtle (fudge, carmel, pecans). If you hit it at the wrong time it can be very crowded, if we had arrived 5 minutes later... More
