My family of 4 came here, each getting 2 scoops with a waffle cone and paid $20 so it is great value for money. There are several flavors to choose from, including a couple they make themselves. You CAN try a flavor if you ask - we did - and then decide. This is located at the Bottom left end... More

For dessert or a snack, try their gelato. It's not the biggest selection of flavors but enough to keep people happy judging by their clientele. The consistency of their gelato is done right and you'll find the extra bit you pay for a waffle cone worth it. Enjoy.

We had been told by several folks on the Riverwalk that we had to try Justin's because they had the best ice cream on the Riverwalk. We did try it. I had gelato and my son had sorbet. Both were fine... average... but 'nothing to write home about.' I would not go out of my way to seek it out... More

We always make Justin's part of our trip to San Antonio. Locally crafted unique flavors such as Horchata, Lime Inna Coconut, and chocolate hazelnut means we can have a different flavor every night. High quality creamy ice cream and sherbet served by friendly staff. What's not to love?

comparable to Ben and Jerry's quality. A buck lower in cost and a little easier to get to from the River walk. (B+J's is up on the street).

I'm a real Ice Cream junkie, I can never get enough and have bought ice cream all over the world. Justin's is a disappointment. When I looked in the case, my first thought was "Where's all those vibrant colors you usually see? All I saw was row after row of bins full of pale, washed out pastel colors. If you'd... More
