Just like the traditional soft-serve drive-ups from long ago. I know of no better place for frozen custard. Literally countless flavors of the day to look forward to. Service is always friendly and efficient. Music takes you back to the awesome sixties. Plenty of outdoor seating. Remains open late in the season, almost until the snow arrives.

This is our family go to place for a treat especially during the season. It's hard to go anywhere else after you tried Greg's!

Best hot fudge ever! Creamy custard, never icy. Generous servings. Great music! Try the vanilla...you will never feel the same about vanilla! It is the best way to tell the quality of the custard it hour all of the sugary add ins! Wonderful!!

You won't find better frozen custard (richer, creamier than any soft serve) than Greg's. Chocolate and Vanilla and a Flavor of The Day come in cones, of course, or used in a wonderfully wild variety of sundaes--even in a "mini" size if you want. Prices good.

This place reminds me of custard stands from my youth. Greg's is, itself, very good. I've stopped for custard in a cup as well as for their food. The last time I was there it was unplanned. I'd walked into the Subway next door and after standing-around and positively fuming because they move at less than a snail's pace, I... More

This is the kind of place you plan your Chicago vacations around. Coming to the Chicago area? Greg's is open till the day before Thanksgiving. It reopens on the last Friday in March.

Custard is way better than ice cream. I am comparing this to the custard shop in Burlington, WI which is phenomenal. This shop is way better than most icecream stores in reh area

Two separate visits over Labor Day weekend -- one trip for mocha chip and one trip for peanut butter cup. Both with hot fudge. It's probably a very good thing that I don't live any closer to Greg's.
