I stopped for some frozen custard after dinner elsewhere (though I've eaten very good meals at other Anderson's before), and got a chocolate and vanilla cone. Excellent custard, nice atmosphere, all around great visit!

The roast beef sandwich on kimmelwich is great. Definitely try it if you have never had this type of roll. The Carl's choice is a good size for a hungry person.

Had a roast beef on a plain roll, so good. Tender and juicy. Also an order of sweet potato fries. Always good

Anderson's is famous for its roast beef on kimmelweck which is good, but not as good as Schwabel's or a few other places. The custard is good but not as good as Fran Ceils in Lackawanna. So, I guess it's good but not great!

I'd be tempted to say that the Beef-on-Weck sandwiches found at Anderson's are pretty dang near worth the 6-hour drive from Detroit, even if that's the only reason you come to Buffalo. Yes, they're that good. Can't recall if I've ever even had the frozen custard, so I can't speak to that, but do yourself a favor - if you're... More

Very good ice cream but do not go for the food. Subpar roast beef and instant mashed potatoes. Not very good, even by fast food standards.

I have been going to Anderson's for at least, 50 years and have ALWAYS had great frozen custard and great food. They have expanded their menu over the past few years. If you have never gone to Anderson's, you're missing out. Give them a try and you will love Anderson's too !!

I grew up within a stone's throw of the Anderson's in Tonawanda. This one is great! They have gluten free ice cream cones, and serve gluten free bread. As someone who cannot consume gluten, I was so happy to have Anderson's. They do NOT have a dedicated kitchen, but the staff is trained to minimize cross contamination. The food was... More

Nice restaurant with an outward design appearance of a quality home, this restaurant specializes in family featured menu items .... sandwiches, hot dogs, soups, salads, etc. at a fair price. Extensive home-made ice cream selection can provide dessert for a complete meal. Order at counter and pick-up to take selections in an inside or patio table.
