I'm no foodie and almost never write reviews like this, but this place is absolutely fantastic - a real gem that you don't want to miss while in Lubbock, even if you think you are already too full (or too fat) for dessert. While the...variety of offerings is perhaps a bit over-the-top, as evidenced by the extremely large menu taking up one wall of the building, the quality is outstanding, and the prices are extremely reasonable. Also, the speed, attitude and responsiveness of the employees was great. The place was very busy, but they were still taking orders and keeping people moving at a great pace.More

The custard is ok. Nothing special and certainly not risking your life for. The drive thru frequently has multiple cars out in the street daring traffic to avoid them. All summer, one must check to see if the J’s creamery drive thru is occupying 82nd...st.More

Extremely good custard and mixtures. Smoothies, sundaes, concretes, and shakes. No seating, most business is drive thru.

On a typically hot summer day in Lubbock, after finishing dinner, we decided to give ourselves a treat at J’s Creamery (formerly Sheldon’s?). This was definitely one of the best summertime treats we could have had! I enjoyed a nitro cold coffee, a really smooth...coffee with a latte-like froth. I also pinched some of my wife’s chocolate sundae, so I know how wonderful the ice-cream is also. J’s offers an amazingly wide variety of flavors and dairy creations. This is certainly one of the best, if not the best, places for very satisfying ice-cream in Lubbock. It’s not clear whether they sell larger quantities (pints, half gallons) since no indication on the signage. Also, I hope that they someday provide a more comfortable seating area for those who want to linger outside the store. Just some additional, more comfortable seats would be good, an enclosed space to block out the traffic noise would be even better. Nonetheless, this is a great place for ice-cream!More

Completely worth the stop. They had a fun atmosphere, great menu option. And the dessert was some of the best.

...and head to J’s creamery. Velvety smooth frozen custard with a plethora of toppings ranging from butter finger bits to s’mores. All the fruit you could imagine. And the staff was friendly and enthusiastic. This place is almost worth getting off the main highway for...a taste of their magic.More

J’s custard concoctions are always so delightful! This time I got the Cinnamon Churro blend and added Rice Krispies and Wedding Cake bites!

Formerly Sheridan's I think but now it's J's Creamery! It's a bit expensive but the great ice cream, concretes, shakes, cones... it's all good!

I lived in Lubbock years ago and when I have to visit, I go to J’s as soon as I land. The mocha almond concrete with Heath bar added is simply amazing. The espresso in the chocolate makes all the difference. And the espresso makes...this delicious treat impossible to recreate at other frozen custard places. I love this place.More

We tried the turtle sundae, an Oreo concrete, and a chocolate waffle cone. They were all great. The turtle sundae had the right combination of salty pecans, caramel, and hot fudge. The service was fri nelly even though it was super busy during our visit.

J's creamery staff stinks, I really miss the Sheridan staff. Although I really do like the custard, I will not return because of bad customer service.

This place is on the opposite side of town where I live, but if I am ever in the area I make plans to go there. I get the Texas star. I love their hot fudge. This is like a small banana split. They sometimes...get busy in the evening but that is because it is so good .More

Went there with my wife for a date night dessert. It was our first time there. I had the Texan which was sort of like a small banana split. It was so good I nearly went back and got another one. It was only $5....The place was busy and had to wait about 6 minutes for them to make it. I will definitely go back. They need seating outside when you have to wait. They have drive thru also.More
