If you want an absolutely delicious tender roast beef sandwich, with au jus and horseradish on a kimmelwick roll (hard roll with rock salt and caraway seeds), this is the fast food place to go!! SO good!

When I'm in the area, I WILL be at Anderson's. Keep it simple. I get the roast beef on kimmelweck. The beef is deliciously rare, the roll the perfect balance of bread, caraway seed, and salt, and the traditional way with horseradish is outstanding. The Carl's is the size to satisfy a hearty appetite and give you all the wonderful... More

Anderson's is iconic in this region. It is brilliant for its ability to honor long lasting traditions while keeping itself hip and relevant. They have several locations, but I go to the first - on Sheridan. This is so much more than the beloved Custard stand of my youth. Anderson's is now all-season, with an updated dining area. The menu... More

Reliable succulent thin sliced beef on bun. BBQ beef a nice alternative. Great fries. Soft ice cream is great. No matter the size we want more. Value good. Clean and friendly. I like the chile too.

A locally owned family chain serving burgers and ice cream, however my favorite is always their roast beef sandwich. Whether on plain or kimmelweck rolls, the beef is freshly sliced and very tasty. Prices are very reasonable as well

37 years ago my husband and I had our "first date" at the sheridan drive location. After meeting at work we stopped for a bite to eat, BBQ beef and a milk shake. A tradition with our family now our children and grandchildren love going year round for custard, curley fries or a treat. My favorite flavors of custard are... More

Beef on weck just can't be beat. It's always my favorite with the delicious au jus! Soups are interesting and often appeal to my husband. He also likes their chicken sandwich which allows for a break from beef. Chocolate sodas are wonderful with beef but there are no Pepsi or coke products which is really disappointing to my family. They... More

Been around long enough you have to go, but it is not gourmet. We were able to sit outside on a warm summer evening. Very good onion rings. Very friendly young staff.

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
