I love this place. It has an old 50's drive-in vibe. It's super casual to grab some frozen custard and enjoy outside. it's nothing fancy, but it sure is tasty! I've never had the "real" food, so I can't comment on that. But the custard...More

I visit Katie's almost every time I go to Waco... My favorite is the Vortex, you can pick the ice cream base, a fold in, and the topping (warm!) core. So good. I did a combo of vanilla with pineapple and caramel. It was heavenly.

OK, it's sweet yummy cold frozen custard, essentially like ice cream. It gets hot in Waco so this is a good place to cool off. I have been a couple times and when I ordered strawberry and cherry, it came with fresh chunks of strawberries...More

I got chocolate with caramel and fudge in a vortex. Was a little melty but yummy. If you like custard this is a good option.

The custard is so smooth and fresh tasting that it tastes better than ice cream! The employees could work on being more friendly. The walk-up order window should not be so close to the drive-thru.

Frozen Custard was very good. I had vanilla wafers mixed into mine which was new and surprisingly good. Worth your time when you are in Waco.

Delicious frozen custard at a place that's like a step back in time. My Coffee Toffee Cyclone was great as was my wife's Rocky Road Sundae. My boys had milkshakes that they loved and gobbled up in no time. Kind of pricey, but very good.

Katie's is locally owned and has been around for years. We're fans of the chocolate. So smooth and creamy!

Just happened on this gem on a road trip through Texas. Holy cow, were we ever lucky! Had a Whoa bacon burger box. The burger is slider size so order two if you're hungry. The sauce is special and really jazzed up the French fries....More

As I was driving South on I-35 I noticed the billboard for this place. I thought to myself if the place has a billboard it must be worth trying. I went out of my way to eat here and the the food was just as...More
