Great place to enjoy tons of unique flavors of Creamy goodness! Tried the Butterscotch popcorn and Gooey Buttercake flavours and they tasted so good!

jeni’s was yummy. there were lots of good looking choices so we got lots of samples. the server was very patient despite the huge line that came out of nowhere! Decent prices, though the scoops felt a little small. great waffle bowl super crunchy and flavorful

Pleasant ice cream experience! The line was out the door when we arrived but the wait wasn’t long! Sampled a couple flavors but ordered a two scoop waffle cone of gooey butter cake and darkest chocolate! Rich, creamy and flavorful! The cone was delicious as well! My friend ordered the milkiest chocolate and coffee with cream and sugar. The coffee ice cream reminded me of a childhood memory which was a sweet experience, pun intended! 🤭 We sat outside on their patio and enjoyed the evening with music from a nearby restaurant and folks with their pups! Forgot to snap a photo until we were almost finished! Excited to try more flavors! Honestly gonna go for three scoops next time!

Such a fan of originality. Great original flavors that aren't too over the top. Was a great find not far from my hotel. Pictures is the 3 scoop in a house made waffle bowl. Brown butter almond, gooey cake batter, and honey vanilla. Loved it!!!

By far the best ice cream in the triangle! As soon as you enter you’re hit with the smell of sweet ice cream and waffle cones. All the flavors are so delicious! I got a triple scoop of salted peanut butter with chocolate flecks, salted caramel, and brown butter almond brittle. The flavors went beautifully together. I’d say the peanut butter was my favorite with the almond brittle a close second. I tried the wildberry lavender and it was an explosion of flavor! Since my review I have literally thought about this place every day. 🤤 I’m obsessed. I don’t think you can go wrong with any flavors, and the waffle cone was delicious as well.

Very good ice cream. They got some frozen yogurt flavors too. Powdered jelly donut was the best. It has actual jelly in it and it tastes divine. Get a sample before trying it. Its also a seasonal thing but its just too good.

Wow, great little ice cream shop. I had no idea they did a collaboration with Ted Lasso, super cool. Both of the Non-Dairy options they had were really good but I liked the Texas chocolate sheet cake the best. The outside and inside space was amazing and 100% a great place to visit before/after dinner or lunch downtown.

This is the best dairy free ice cream I’ve had in my life. Lemon shortbread or something. Worth it twenty thousand times over. Also the person who made my cone had the most angelic smile. Plus the decor just pops with bold colors balanced by spacious brightness. Love.

If one ponders for a brief moment, after finishing the Mexican Chocolate ice cream at Jeni’s Splendid, the prospect of going back to the counter and ordering a pint of the stuff, one would not be alone. I too, felt the spicy, chocolatey bliss drawing me like a moth to flame. There are worse things my friends, than that magnetic pull. Keep calm and dairy on!

I really enjoyed the ambiance and service at Jenis. The flavors were unique and had good taste without being overly sweet or false tasting. The presentation is also lovely and seems like a good value for a trio of flavors.
