Anderson's is always my first stop when I come to Buffalo. The roast beef sandwiches are the best I have ever had, and always a great custard to round off the meal. The service is always fast and courteous. I tell everyone going to Buffalo that this is the place to go

I purchased my very first frozen custard back in 1949 at the original "Anderson's", located at Claremont Avenue and Kenmore. Mom and Pop Anderson served custard cones while holding small babies, it was the best frozen custard one could buy and it still going strong after over 66 years of service to the Kenmore Area. Their offsprings and grandchildren are... More

Great beef on weck and superb soft/hard ice cream. Food was hot and served with a smile. Good location to enter and exit and lots of parking.

Been going here all my life. No that I live out of state it is a must stop when I am in town. My kids insist on it. Try the cinnamon custard when available. They Beef on Weck is a Buffalo staple.

When growing up in Cheektowaga in the 50s and early 60s we used to go to my grandmother's home in North Tonawanda via Niagara Falls Blvd. A high point of the trip during the summer was a stop at a frozen custard stand on NF Blvd. It's long gone but last year my sister and I discovered this gem near...

Beef on weck was awesome! Get the large you will want the bigger one. I also got the chilli cheese fries. Also lots of great ice cream choices. This is the perfect spot to take a family with kids or any couple that was a nice quick cheap eat.

I am a big fan of frozen custard so when I saw Anderson's, I decided we needed to stop in. There were so many options between custards, ice creams, sundaes, etc that we had to let numerous people go by us before we were ready to order. The variety was amazing but in the end I settled on frozen custard.... More

Andersons has been around for many years for good reason. They have one of the best beef on weck sandwiches and their ice cream is delicious. They have a variety of sandwiches, and soups on a regular basis. Only one problem with the Sheridan Ave restaurant.. there is not enough indoor seating. In the winter there are only a few... More

I always like a treat of frozen custard when in the Buffalo are, as it's not something we have in Canada. This is a lovely local chain with great desserts and a good selection!
