Some historians trace the origin of frozen custard to Coney Island, New York, in the early 20th century. By the 1930s, the Midwest had discovered frozen custard. The Kirkhoff family of Lafayette, Indiana, opened its first stand in 1932. Today, Milwaukee sells more frozen custard than anywhere else in the world. For its part, Andy's Frozen Custard began serving in 1986 in Osage Beach, Missouri. Now it has 11 locations in the Chicago area, three in the city, and locations in nine other states. My favorite stop is at 9507 South Cicero Avenue in Oak Lawn, in the Green Oak Shopping Center. What makes frozen custard special? And why is Andy's so good? Frozen custard is cream, sugar, vanilla extract and a few other trade secrets. It is creamier than regular ice cream, contains more butterfat and is churned very slowly. The slower turning blades keep air from being mixed into the custard as it freezes. The result is a dessert that is rich, thick and decadent. It is made fresh hourly and served immediately to maintain its luxurious creaminess. Now you know. What separates Andy's from all the rest is its variety. It's an ice cream shop with a drive-through that offers frozen custard, sundaes, concretes, malts, shakes, freezes, floats, old-fashioned sodas, Italian ice, splits, custom cones and cups and 31 toppings. What more can you ask? Our favorites are the triple chocolate concrete, chocolate frozen custard blended with chocolate chip cookie dough and melted chocolate chips; butter pecan concrete, vanilla frozen custard with butterscotch and roasted pecans; German chocolate concrete, chocolate frozen custard blended with brownies, creme caramel and coconut; and Andy's banana split, vanilla frozen custard and a whole banana covered with strawberries, marshmallow creme, crushed nuts and topped with a cherry. Or you might just settle for a hot fudge sundae with pecans. Spring flavors include strawberry shortcake, blueberry and blackberries. In the summer, it's peaches and key lime pie. In the fall, the headliner is pumpkin pie. In the winter, be sure to order apple pie, candy cane, Andy nog, peppermint bars and fresh baked chocolate chip Cookie Casanova. There are so many creations and flavors but they all are based on one signature ingredient, Andy's frozen custard.

They have monthly specials for their Concrete Mixers. My favorites are Peach and Apple Pie. The Apple Pie and Key Lime Pie Concretes are mixed with whole pieces of the respective pies.

A little over priced when compared to Culvers but a nice treat, on in a while

This place was very popular, even late at night. Really good custard and service was super fast---even through the drive thru. We went 2 nights in a row and it was great both times.

We have passed this Andy's several times on the way to or from the airport, and I always wanted to stop and try it. Today was the day. The line was long, but with great anticipation I waited for my turn in line. I decided to order a medium pecan concrete; even though it was $6.34 + tax, I splurged. It was good. However for the price, I think it could have been much better. More pecans, more butterscotch, and a firmer custard would have been nice. I am glad I tried it though because now I don't have to wonder anymore when we pass Andy's Custard.
