The third Andy’s Frozen Custard celebrated their grand opening in June. I wasn’t able to make it out and heard there were some good-size crowds. I opted to hold off and swing by during a mid-afternoon when they weren’t busy. The national frozen custard chain is nothing new to me. I’ve been to their east and west side location and wanted to check out the new one in College Hill.

If you’ve never been to Andy’s Frozen Custard, they have a bit of everything from concretes, sundaes, malts, splits, floats and more.
The one in College Hill is a bit different from the other locations. They toned it down to do their best to keep the spirit of College Hill. There’s an awesome mural on the west side wall from local artist John Pirtle.
Having tried many of the items at Andy’s, I wanted to do something different. There was a Strawberry Shortcake Sundae advertised that sounded delicious. It featured Grandma Elaine’s freshly baked shortcake covered with Andy’s vanilla frozen custard topped with delicious strawberries.
It hit the spot for me. If Grandma Elaine was around, I would have given her a high five. I love all cold treats that include strawberries and this was a delicious treat on a hot summer afternoon.
I was a big fan of the design of Andy’s. There’s a drive-thru for those on the go and a chill patio for families to enjoy. I understand there was some contention with Andy’s arrival to College Hill. Whether people are willing to support the franchise is up to the individual. For me, I don’t live in the neighborhood, so I don’t have any angst about it. I went into it with an unbiased viewpoint and enjoyed my sundae.
Here’s their menu:
