Carl and Greta Anderson owners of Buffalo's Best Ice Cream Shop About Anderson’s Frozen Custard

Long before being known for Buffalo’s best ice cream, it was in 1946 that Carl and Greta Anderson, the son and daughter of Swedish immigrants, opened the first Anderson’s Frozen Custard on White Plains Boulevard in Bronx, New York. Homesick for Buffalo, they returned to open another custard stand on Kenmore Avenue in 1947. Hard work and quality soon earned them a great reputation and allowed them to replace their small custard stand with a larger one on Sheridan Drive in 1953. This original drive-in location still exists today. Anderson’s continued high quality products and services have also led to recognition such as Artvoice’s 2015 Best Ice Cream in Buffalo award. Over time, it has become a necessary tradition in the Buffalo, NY area – to stand in line at Anderson’s.

In the mid 80’s, the tradition was passed on to the next generation of Anderson’s!  The brother and sister duo – Keith and Holly Anderson are at the helm today, carrying on the traditions with our management and service team.

Quality creates the best ice cream

Artvoice award winning Best Ice Cream in Buffalo for Anderson's strawberry ice creamWe carry the dedication to quality as was instilled by Carl & Greta. We serve our original two main products: all natural roast beef on weck & our signature frozen custard.   In the 1990’s we began producing our own handmade ice cream and hard frozen yogurts & sherbets.  We have also added some new twists to the traditional items and opted to offer a wider variety of menu items including healthier gluten free options.  We invite you to learn more about our offerings by checking out our full lunch and dinner menu and learn more about our on-site and pick-up catering services!

It is so fun to see families & friends celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, school accomplishments and spending quality time together while sharing a roast beef on weck, handmade ice cream or a frozen custard cone or shake! We are honored to serve our guests!  We hope to see you soon at one of our 6 locations or at our #weckonwheels food truck rolling through the WNY community.  Anderson’s, …Taste the Tradition!
