I came here on a hot day after reading all the positive reviews. It was a toss up between here and another but Leon's had so many great things posted. I arrive at about noon on a Tuesday and this place had plenty of customers...More

What a great custard... I'm not sure if I was blown away more by custard or price of it! Definitely feels like time travel experience. It is family friendly place I definitely recommend visiting!

If in the area, this drive up and walk up to the window to grab some custard shop is great! Cash only and prices are a bit higher. I recommend the chocolate soda

Traditional custard drive-in an icon in milwaukee. Lines move quickly even on busy nights. Great sundaes and thick malts. I've been going there with parents/relatives since grade school, and continue going with friends some 60 years later.

I have been going to Leon's for years. The custard there is the best around! The staff is friendly, and the atmosphere reminds me of days ago when everyone sat outside eating and talking. It's still a friendly atmosphere and is fun to go there.

This custard has been around multiple generations. It is the best. It is also much less expensive than its competitors.
