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.

Best place to get ice cream! Customer service could be more professional but nothing that would stop me from going again and again.

I didn't even think I liked custard that much, but my mind was quickly changed. Everyday they have chocolate and vanilla plus a flavor of the day. There are also mix ins you can add. The custard stands out for exceptional favor and consistency. The mint chocolate chip was the favor of the day yesterday, and it was the best... More

By far Nielsen's has THE BEST custard I have ever had. When we lived in SLC, we used to travel 20-25 minutes out of our way just to go to Nielsen's. I was obsessed with their pumpkin custard during the fall and stocked up on it for a couple months :). If you are in the SLC area, you MUST... More

This place is nothing great to look at but a Salt Lake City tradition. My husband took me here saying I've never tasted anything like it, and it's true. Wow. At first I thought it was like a DQ Blizzard-like product, but if I can describe it to anyone I would say its like a DQ Blizzard but a lot... More

Always a great place to stop. Staff has always been overly friendly and hard working. Not a sit down place and a bit noisy inside but still worth it.

This location is a tiny "shack" where you can drive through or stop and pick up a frozen treat. There is no seating inside, which is basically one small ordering area. The area outside the place is not inviting for hanging out. However, the frozen custard that we tried was very good. We tried a flavor that I believe was... More

I make it a special point to stop at this place when I am in Salt Lake. They are always busy but it is worth any wait you may have. The employees are friendly and make the experience enjoyable. That would be enough even if the custard was not good. Lucky for you the custard is excellent. My personal favorite... More
