Meadows Frozen Custard

It's slim pickings for people who want real frozen custard in my part of the country (I'm in Philly and I know of only one place in this entire region that serves it; that being out in the burbs). I was looking for places on line and noticed there is a frozen custard chain called Meadows or The Meadows with a bunch of outlets in south central and western Pennsylvania. I occasionally go out to Pittsburgh, so if this place makes the real deal and it's good, I would be willing to make a minor detour off the turnpike.

Is anybody out here familiar with the place? Is it top-of-the-line genuine frozen custard that they serve?

Thanks.

    While Meadow's isn't "top-of-the-line" I think it's pretty good and worth a small detour. The one in Greensburg probably isn't more than 10 miles of the New Stanton exit of the Turnpike.

    I think it's richer and more dense than Rita's custard and it comes out in a strip from the freezer, like most better custards.

    They used to have a birthday club where you'd get a card for a freebie, but Greensburg, Hagerstown, Md and Frederick, Md had no idea what I was talking about.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    KOK, they haven't heard of the birthday club because each franchise is individually owned, it's the owners' descretion whether or not they want to implement the birthday club, also most of the owners aren't familiar with the birthday club because it's not a Meadows tradition, it's merely one owner's idea.

    That makes sense. I should have been more clear that the one in Greensberg, Pa used to have the birthday club, and I got a card in 2005 and 2006. I was back in Pittsburgh earlier this year and Greensburg had done away with the club

    Thanks,

    Yeah it's a shame they did away with the club, the reason being is that too many people abused the system, without getting into the details of it, you can imagine how people would make fake names and birthdates just to take advantage of the birthday club cards.

    First off I'd like to say it is certainly "top-of-the-line." There's a reason why it's been successful for 50+ years now in the western PA location. Their custard easily rivals that of Ted Drewes in St. Louis and Culver's. Given it is a much small franchise due to ownership reasons, nevertheless it's product is nowhere near anything less than "top-of-the-line."

    I've been to Ted Drewes many times and, IMO, Meadows is not as good. I like Meadows but don't consider it on par with Ted Drewes.

    I don't know if you're affiliated with Meadows (3 of your 4 posts are in this thread and your town is listed as Hagerstown, MD where there is a Meadows). If so, I meant no disrespect, though I think you should disclose if you're affiliated. If not, we simply disagree on what we think is the best custard.

    That said, whenever I can, I stop at Meadows as I like it very much.
