Holy cow this ice cream is amazing! Very filling thick and creamy! I've never had anything like it we love taking the kids to get ice cream at different places that we travel. Each time we go to SA we will definitely stop by this place!

Fantastic selection of flavors - Really enjoy the atmosphere, service was excellent, and price is right on. Could not ask for more- stop in for a treat to cool you off a bit! Highly recommended.

We hadn't been to Brindles for several years, but remembered it as having delicious gelato and ice cream. We were not disappointed this trip to SATX. The service was wonderful as was the ice cream. So glad that some things haven't changed.

Great ice cream! Interesting flavors and old standards. Great affrogato, plus toppings that make children of all ages happy. Cups or cones, this is always our first stop in San Antonio!

The ice cream is okay at Brindle's, but not as tasty as I expected from all the good reviews. I will say, they had a very good selection of flavors, and the servers were friendly and accommodating. Don't believe the claims that Brindle's gelato is as good as the gelato in Italy. It isn't. Doesn't even come close.

We visited San Antonio in August and had Brindles ice cream for dessert at a restaurant. It was so amazing that we had to have more before we left town. It was summer and hot, so there were lots of customers even on a Sunday. Staff was generous and patient serving samples. I'm picky about ice cream and I LOVE... More

My boyfriend and I came here on a Sunday evening and were overwhelmed with all the delicious flavor choices there were. It took us a good fifteen minutes to decide but the staff was super patient and helpful! We tasted about five flavors each. I ended up going with the Azteca (Mexican chocolate flavor) and pistachio and I was not... More

Excellent tasting ice cream, and very reasonably prices. Friendly staff, great portions, and its all homemade! A perfect hang out spot for family, there are a few tables out front too!. We had the cheesecake ice cream with strawberries and cookies and cream. We could have sat all day and ate ice cream!
