What?s the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
Often times customers who have never truly tasted real frozen custard (made the way it should be made in a genuine frozen custard machine) are almost in shock by how rich and creamy our custard tastes in comparison to hard packed ice cream or soft serve. Many will agree that it is the most flavorful, creamiest type of ice cream that they've ever tried.

Our shop is outfitted in The Meadows Original Frozen Custard colors of yellow, blue, and white?the same colors that The Meadows has been using since 1950.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
In addition to our unique frozen custard, we also offer all of the typical ice cream shop menu items, including sundaes, milkshakes, gelatis, smoothies, arctic swirls, floats, quarts, pints, cakes, pies, and cookie sandwiches. We offer four frozen custard flavors per day: chocolate, vanilla, and two flavors of the day that rotate daily. We have gluten-free and sugar-free options on our menu.
Each of Milano's Pizza's thin-crust pies start with fresh dough and house-made sauce, but from there the rest is up to you. To build-your-own pizza, you'll need to somehow choose from a list of nearly 30 toppings, including unusual items such as steak, fontinella cheese, artichoke hearts, and even crabmeat. Of course, if that's too overwhelming, you can always opt for one of the eatery's 18 tried-and-true specialty pizzas, including a pierogi pizza topped with mashed potatoes, onions, bacon, and cheddar. And although pizza is the specialty at Milano's, there are plenty of non-pizza items on the menu, too, such as pasta, calzones, and hoagies. Whatever the main course, you'll want to save room for dessert, where you can go the traditional route and order a chocolate-dipped cannoli or go the untraditional route and order another pizza.
Doug Baros loves burgers and hot dogs. But like many people in today’s health-conscious culture, he couldn’t escape the questions that came with eating his favorite foods. What are the ingredients? When was it prepared? Is it loaded with harmful preservatives?
So Doug took matters into his own hands and opened Burgerz and Dogz, where every burger and dog is prepared with the freshest, purest ingredients. Doug took his idea one step further by outfitting the restaurant with an open kitchen to allow visitors to watch their meals come together. Those meals might be custom creations or items plucked straight from the menu, such as the Loaded burger piled high with bacon, egg, french fries, coleslaw, and cheese.
The traditional farmers' market at Trax Farms, owned and operated by the Trax family since 1865, teems with an eclectic array of produce grown onsite, freshly baked goods, deli fare, and gifts amid 325 acres of fields and orchards. The owners eschew imported produce for farm-grown, seasonal vegetables and fruits, and furnish their shelves with local and international specialty foodstuffs, Sarris and Wagner’s chocolates, and the farm’s own brand of flavored coffee. The aroma of freshly baked seasonal pies, homemade breads, and made-from-scratch cookies tantalizes noses as the deli rolls out soups, salads, and sandwiches assembled from premium meats and cheeses. In addition to a selection of quilts, clothing, and jewelry, the shop boasts wines, including award-winning Arrowhead Wine Cellar varietals. Furthering its homey, community-centered approach, the farm hosts flea markets, festivals, and special events, such as its autumnal hayride, which entices young visitors and scarecrows with thinning scalps.
In the suburban communities of the South Hills, poverty has been on the rise. As many as 12% of the population—approximately 5,000 families—lives at or below the federal poverty level. South Hills Interfaith Ministries works to help these families regain their self-sufficiency. Along with two food pantries that provide emergency groceries, and a community clothing room, the organization runs utility assistance programs, coat drives, and family-support services such as teen mentoring and financial literacy programs. And the community impact is significant. In 2012 alone, the organization donated school supplies to 425 students, distributed more than 1,500 pounds of fresh produce, and provided $30,336 in utility assistance.
