This place screams nostalgic time warp. Heard nothing but great things. We experienced a mix bag. We went a hr before closing. The Custard cone I got was fantastic, with lots of cookies in the cream! However, my wife's Sundae was small and was missing...More

The best creamy frozen custard anywhere. Sort of a 50's decor ....reminds me of "American Graffiti". The nicest young employees...there must have been 15 there the night we visited.

Best homemade frozen custard I have ever had. Very clean both inside and outside. Lots of outdoor seating, 50's music playing. Staff was very polite and friendly.

Homemade creamy frozen custard! The chocolate reminded me a little of a Wendy's frosty. Walk up windows with outdoor seating. I just got custard in a bowl but they have sundaes and shakes, etc. Right next to the big Sheetz.

EVERYONE knows The Meadows original frozen custard. If you haven't been - you need to go. It's been a staple in many lives for years. Duncansville location is the original site. They have franchise locations - but really - you need to go.

The best ice cream in Blair County. Daily flavors and various treats. Milkshakes are outstanding. If you are fortunate to visit in the fall they have a fresh Apple Dumpling Sundae that is fantastic. Worth the trip just for that treat.
