Andy’s Frozen Custard

andysJust like my occasional uncontrollable sushi cravings, I sometimes get equally strong Andy’s cravings.  It just so happened that the last time an Andy’s craving struck was following a yummy sushi dinner at Shoguns.  I thought I might as well calm two cravings in one night, so I hit up Andy’s on the way home.

People may think Andy’s is your typical run-of-the-mill ice cream shop, but that is so wrong.  Andy’s Frozen Custard is a secret recipe of cream, milk, sugar, and eggs, and is processed and shipped to Andy’s locations within 24 hours providing their patrons with the freshest, creamiest, best tasting custard out there.  The custard is then made fresh hourly, and only served at its peak to insure optimal taste and texture.

The Andy’s in Tyler, located on South Broadway, is family owned and operated and at least one family member can be found working at all times.  The service is always so friendly, and the workers are always smiling.  I probably would be too, if I got free custard.

  1. Sorry, I just can’t get excited about ordering ice cream from a window and then either standing outside to eat it or worse yet eating in your car (I have a no eating rule in my car). I understand their product is wonderful and it seems to be a great hang-out for young people in the summer.

  2. Wonderful ice cream and many varieties to choose from . Wish they would come up with a reduced fat/calorie option. Love to share an ice cream with my husband – sometimes we take it to nearby rudman park for a great place to relax.

  3. It just tasted like good ice cream to me. I’d rather have a Dairy Queen hot fudge sundae.

  4. My husband and I love to treat ourselves to Andy’s once in a while. It is a little pricier than a blizzard or other like desserts but it is well worth it and we dont mind paying a little more for awesomeness.

  5. I love Andy’s! The James Brownie Funky Jackhammer is amazing and so is their root beer!!

  6. I went there once and only once. I waited at the drive through behind about 6 cars. When I finally got the thing (concrete, I think they called it), they gave me a cup with a hole in the side. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize there was a hole in it until I had driven several block in heavy traffic. By the time I found a place to stop, it had dripped all over my legs, seat, and floor. When I returned to Andy’s, the guy at the window said, “Oh, sorry, we have a problem with the mixer cutting holes in the cups.” I had to ask for a refund, and they didn’t offer anything to compensate for the mess that I had on my clothes and in my truck. I will not go back.

  7. OMG, family, friends and more have an unhealthy? obsession for this place.
