Houston Press' Description

Amy's started out as an Austin institution, but Amy's in Houston opened its doors in the early 1990s. Since then the ice cream, in its quirky little spot on Farnham, has grown to be a local favorite. The loud plaster cow and eccentric exterior makes it fit right in with its equally fun neighbors. Seven regular flavors are paired with seasonal and limited time-flavors, making every visit quite possibly something new. Mix-ins, specialty cones, and the occasional non-dairy favorites are also available. Part of the application process for potential employees is decorating a paper bag, which should tell you something about the staff.
