For years we have heard ice cream lovers rave about Brindles ice cream and finally made the trip to the place in a high end strip mall along I-10 at Heubner Road. Two separate freezers...one for gelatos and the other for traditional ice creams. The butter fat content makes its location (close to the medical district!) opportune but the flavorings... More

If you love the wonderful old-time ice cream parlors of years gone by, you will LOVE Brindles. The quality of ice cream is like nothing I've ever experienced. Words like "Rich and Creamy" just don't do it justice! But what really sets Brindles apart is the surprising "pairings" of unique ingredients that result in flavors that make me want to... More

Love the waffle bowls! And the variety of flavors! We sampled Amaretto Gelato and Red Velvet Cake but decided on Moose Tracks, Orange Dreamsicle, Biga and Chocolate! Yumm-o! We were hoping this would be in the style of an ice cream parlor, but we were satisfied with the ambiance. And the service was quick and friendly. We'll be back!!

I visited San Antonio last March, I know...this took me a while, but I just wanted to say this place serves great ice cream! I love ice cream, but I usually stick to my favorites. When I saw the lemon basil flavor, I had my doubts at first, but then I thought "I like basil and I like lemon, what... More

Brindles does gelato right! The first place I've ever encountered Cardamom flavored ice cream, and it was a delight! Our party of four enjoyed a variety of shakes and gelato cups and every one was pleased. We relaxed a long while with friends before catching a flight home on a Monday afternoon, and sat on a cozy couch and easy... More

Wow. Delicious ice cream. I tried the two scoop cup with one scoop of Banana Pudding and one scoop of Strawberry Cheesecake. Amazing!!! Our whole family ordered different flavors and everyone was equally satisfied. Location is great and the whole family will enjoy it. Depending on what you order, prices will vary. We eat ordered a double scoop cup and... More

Located in the Heubner Oaks Strip Shopping Center Brindles has fresh made gelato and ice cream in dozens of flavors to die for. Typical ice cream shop with very little atmosphere. Does have indoor and outdoor seating and the staff is very helpful (and patient). Why not go to the newest and latest and greatest shop with the airplane hanging... More

Brindles has about the best ice cream on the NW side of San Antonio. It is located in the Strand shopping center near Huebner Oaks. This 'mom and pop" ice cream has excellent gelato blends.
