Love their beef on weck. Very lean, tasty beef on fresh rolls. Their curly fries are great, too. But the best part, after a nice meal, is their ice cream. Great flavors, very tough to decide which one to pick. Good sundae selections. Great ice cream cakes in their freezers. Love their slushies. All around one of the places we... More

For a meal, start with lean Roast Beef on kimmelweck or roll. I love horseradish on the beef. Top it off with a Sundae, cone or dish of hard or soft serve.

This place not only has fantastic frozen custard and ice cream but also really great food. I love their buffalo chicken sandwich and baked sweet potatoes (when they have them). Really good fries too!

Extensive menu for a quick "snack" type meal focusing on the geographic area's desire for roast beef. Restaurant also has extensive menu for a myriad of ice cream dishes, but customer focus is on the "soft style" custard. Counter service for ordering and pick-up. Inside and outside (covered patio) dining areas.

I stopped by Watson's Chocolates for some ice cream (made by Anderson's). I can't say enough great things!!! The flavors were unique and interesting, the taste was rich and delicious, really perfect in every way! I always order custard when going to Anderson's, but from now on, I'll be ordering the hard ice cream. Give it a try!

When visiting family and friends in the Buffalo area, one of the hometown places I stop to eat is Anderson's. The original location is on Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda, but I ate at the location on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst. Their Beef on Weck is always delicious, and you can't go wrong with any of their... More

What a cool place! Loved the story on the cup, makes you appreciate the frozen custard even more! I love how the garage doors open up and you can sit around the tables to have some custard among friends. It was a great stop on our trip. Reasonably priced and overall a friendly experience. Can't wait to come back.

I have been going to Andersons since it was a one location drive up summer only Ice Cream stand. Now it is a multi location Buffalo chain that specializes in frozen custard ice cream and fast food all year round now. I would also recommend the beef on Weck if you are looking for a quick bite to eat. Very... More

How could we have been going to Buffalo all these years, and never been to Anderson's??? Well, that has now changed. Needing a quick bite to eat before our granddaughter's softball game, our daughter steered us to this place. The grandkids were in heaven going there because they could have the kids meal plus an ice cream cone. We were... More

The place is interesting looking like a garage. We were told it's a Buffalo local pride, and we agree. There's tons of choices, and with that unique flavors.
