Austin Shake/Malt Roundup/Rankings

By chris, Feb. 26, 2011

I really like ice cream. But sometimes I’m too lazy to sit there and use a spoon. So when that happens I reach for an ice cream shake. Here are the ones in town I like in most favorite to least:

Recommended:

Big Top – pretty much perfect.

EZ’s – good options. Offers malts too.

Mighty Fine – pretty good

P Terrys – portion seems small but is still a lot of calories. good price. gave me gas last time though… cheap prices mean cheap dairy I guess.

Fuddruckers – It’s been a very long time since I’ve been, but I remember liking it.

Avoid:

Hideout – Oreo shake was blended far beyond what it should have been and lost its consistency

Mighty Cone

Alamo Drafthouse – The most disappointing shake I’ve had because it’s also one of the most expensive. It’s like drinking warm whipped cream.
