BUSTER'S FROZEN CUSTARD 288-7011
Buster's Frozen Custard is a freshly made rich and creamy premium ice cream. What is frozen custard? It started in the early 1900s at Coney Island, and traditionally contains 10 percent butterfat and egg yolk, creating richer flavors. Buster's Custard offers traditional flavors like vanilla and chocolate with an array of toppings and also rotating fruit flavors. If you catch Buster's on a special day, ask for an old-fashioned root beer float. Look for the friendly face of Buster the dog on the side of the truck rolling to a curb near you.
