Good Local Treat

Good local spot, parking can be tricky and they could use a few more seats outside. Line was out the door when we arrived, moved adequately but I'd imagine on a weekend night in the summer the wait could be lengthy (we went on a Thursday night). I had a vanilla concrete with peanut butter cups... read more

they have a basic flavor of custard and add favors to it. The have something called concrete. Be prepared to pay a high price, it is good, better than a blizzard. Different, but kids love it

I've never had a custard here I didn't like. Just keep in mind the Bountiful location only takes cash while the Highland Dr. location will accept cards.

I can say that getting a Custard Sundae was the best. I had a plain Vanilla with Pineapple topping with Almonds was so good the flavors together were Delish. I want to go back now. Its a must try. Customer Service with a smile all worth the trip. I will be back.

Smooth, creamy, fantastic frozen custard. Plain cone or in a cup. Love the vanilla, chocolate is great and often the flavor of the day makes it tough to decide.

The custard here is really really good!! I get the Caramel Cashew Classic and my wife gets the Raspberry Pecan Concrete, and they are not stingy with the nuts. If I didn’t have 20 pounds to lose I would be there every night.

I love this place. The custard is soooo delicious and rich! I think the actual place smells weird...which would usually deter me, but I am obsessed with the custard so I just opt for the drive through. lol I always get a concrete with Heath bars mixed in. YUMMMM!

I have only had frozen custard a few times in my life, but I know my ice cream and gelato, and this is the some of the best I have had. I actually found it on TripAdvisor when I realized that I was staying in Holladay, UT and not SLC. I visited both nights I was in town. The first... More

Great tasting custard staffed by a group of wonderful young teenagers that help you. Definitely try a concrete while you're there.
