Had to wait at least 30 mins in line and it was so worth it. The flavors and mix-ins are great. And the staff moves pretty fast considering how many samples people want. Highly recommend the Guinness ice cream, even if you don't like Guinness, it brings out the chocolate flavor so much.

Best ice cream in Houston. We had the salty dog. It was really good. Grandkids had the Mexican vanilla and the dark chocolate. We all devoured them. Would definitely come back. And if Meme is there, she puts on a show of mixing and then flipping the scoop into your container.

If you've never had the pleasure of Amy's ice cream then you need to stop right now and go have a tub. Amy's is the creamiest, smoothest, most amazing ice cream in the world. They have great flavors and a huge assortment of toppings to crush in there. Prices are great, atmosphere is fun and casual. Do yourself a favor... More

Now I know why there was a line at 10:30pm! This place was amazing! Service is fast, ice cream is amazing and choices were plenty! We did pass it a couple times (perhaps distracted but the beautiful Audi dealership right there!) but would go back. Staff made us feel a little rushed for having never been there but were not...

Ok, I seriously love my ice cream. There are some flavors I can never get enough of. Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream from Amy's is one of those. However far you have to drive and if the traffic is horrendous(Houston, OK) you've got to try this ice cream. This is what dreams are made of...yes, it's that good. Even if you... More

I was so excited to find a location in Houston! Amy's is originially from Austin, and has always been my favorite ice cream place. Finding a location in Houston is awesome :) It's just as good as I remember it. Great ice cream, mixings and toppings!

This is worth a special occasion even though it is VERY casual. The Mexican Vanilla is the way to go

The most horrible experience EVER. My friend and I were passing through Houston late so we stopped because I knew of the one in Austin. It almost makes me never want to get ice cream from Amy's again. Which is sad by the way! First of all, you walk in and NOBODY has a smile on their face except for... More

After a internet search Amy's came up as one of the best in Houston. They were not wrong. I'm not a big lover of ice cream, however it was delicious. I had a combo with toffee sauce with pecans and chocolate sauce. My other half had a salty dog equally as good. There was a bit of a queue when... More
