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.

The soft serve is great. They have many flavores. The service is always very friendly. We go there regularly. A staple in the area.

This custard stand takes you back with oldies music and a motif to match. The place is always well staffed with clean cut young people who are very attentive and quick to serve. Flavors of the day are always special and the pumpkin custard is always good this time of year. We visit this place often and would recommend you... More

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.

Every time I come home, I have to stop at The Meadows. The frozen custard is exactly as good as I remember it. They've added a drive-through window since I was there last and added a bunch of outdoor seating. Of course, we played a round of mini-golf. A great night for the family!!

Always stop when I'm in the area. All of the Meadows are good, but this is the best of any of them. Definitely worth the stop.
