Sandy’s Frozen Custard may very well be the best frozen custard in Texas. And Sandy’s still serves its frozen treats the old-fashioned way—from its walkup window, just the way they did in 1947—and you can still slip back in time at Sandy’s, if you can ignore the tall condo and crane overtowering its vintage neon sign.
And since it’s starting to feel like a Texas summer . . . wouldn’t a frozen custard taste fine right now? Don’t let the overtowering condos overpower you. Just walk right up to that window.
Sandy’s is near lengendary for its staying power at its original South Austin spot since 1947—but how long can it last? Its fans hope forever. ♦
