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.

You can never miss with a stop at Anderson's. Be it for dinner or dessert ... I recommend both! ... you will leave satisfied. Their roast beef sandwiches are delicious, their fries fresh and crisp, and the dessert ... a true ice cream treat ... is a great end to your meal. Traditionally, the roast beef is eaten with a...

Reviewing Anderson's is like reviewing motherhood. Yeah, it's great. Mostly! Here's what for: 1. Foremost, the frozen custard. Richer, creamier, and more luscious than the usual soft-serve (I'm looking at you, DQ), the custard is heaven on a cone. I'm especially partial to Black Raspberry, but the chocolate and choc/vanilla swirl are standouts. And don't miss it in a killer... More

We went after dinner; it was mobbed! The servers were very nice and very efficient; the line moved pretty well. Besides the tasty ice cream, they have a nice menu of 'quick bites' like hamburgers, etc., which we'll have to try next time!

Anderson's has been in the Buffalo area for probably 30 years. It is primarily known for it's frozen custard and ice creams, but also serves your typical burger joint food. The frozen custard, if you've never had it, is like soft ice cream only much richer. The chocolate is to die for. The lemon ice is also fantastic. The sizes... More
