I can only speak to the custard, as I have never sampled their food menu. The custard is quite good, though I prefer Kopp's (just slightly better, in my opinion) and Adrian's in Burlington (THE best in Wisconsin!). You can't beat Leon's for the "drive-in vibe," though, so make sure you go at night when it's all lit up...you'll think... More

For some wonderful unknown reason, Milwaukee is blessed with two of the best frozen custard stands anywhere. And don't even think this is ice cream! So while some of our locals swear by one place, the others do the same with Leon's. A traditional pull up and park, walk to the window and order place that is fast disappearing, Leon's... More

It's custard. It's delicious and best when shared when the one you love. From the shakes, to the sundaes, you can't go wrong with this Milwaukee institution.

Leon's has been around forever which means they are doing something right! Fun place to go for classic custard. It is almost always packed on a warm summer night!

Leon's has been around since I was a kid. Same great frozen custard I enjoyed since then. They do have other selections, but very limited. They specialize in frozen custard. Their hot fudge sundae is to die for

My local friends were going on about the wonderful custard at this shop so I said show me... I asked for two scoops of whatever flavor and what I got was not even enough to fill a store bought sugar cone. It came in one of those clear plastic 6 oz cups and didn't filled just past the halfway point... More
