They only had the option of vanilla as a custard flavor. The custard was grainy and my mother found “fat blobs” in hers. It was disappointing, and is pricy for what it is.

I drove by there a few days ago, and the Custard King is empty with large "For Lease" signs taped up in the windows. This iconic local treasure appears to be closed for good. :-(

The very best custard in the Northwest for sure. It reminds me of midwestern custard but better. I had the chocolate shake on one visit and the chocolate in a cup on another and they were both excellent!

Best ice cream we have had in years. The custard ice cream is smooth and creamy,...very satisfying. Plan on trying hamburgers on next visit as I have heard they are pretty good too.
