This is the real deal- frozen custard. This is not fro-yo or plain soft serve. Old school charm, good service, and melt in your mouth, velvety textured custard. Perfect for a sweet treat. Glen's is popular- if you see a line, be patient. It's worth waiting for.

We visited Glen's during a tough trip up to PA for our family as we were all mourning the loss of a loved one. Glen's frozen custard was definitely a nice way to wrap up a tough day.

They have special flavors and all are very, very good. Mixed the chocolate and butterscotch for a special flavor and it was worth it. Although there are other locations this is hometown specialty. Love the Springdale High School kids that work there. Tell them to keep the change!

After snacking at the Oakmont bakery the previous day, we were searching around for great rated places for dessert and Glen's Frozen Custard caught our eye. A quite small place that might go unnoticed for passers by, its got one of the best dessert options in the area.

Definitely the best custard in the area - wide range of selection and some seating available on the side and back of the building.

Really good, not the best we've had, but really good. (Hanks in Meadville is still #1) nice seating area looking over mini golf is a bonus.

This place is great! The selection is plentiful and the frozen custard is yummy! They will customize your sundaes or milk shake thickness to your liking! If your in the neighborhood this is a must!

The best ice creme treats that make a Northern Summer Night. Soft serve, sherbets, and ice creme all good. Like an old time ice cream social.

Growing up near glen's I thought it was the best custard and it was. It still very good but some thing has changed it not as rich any more. Make sad!
