They dont take credit cards

The custard is delicious, but they don't accept credit cards. Seriously its 2015, they need to get with the times. We don't carry much cash so this was very inconvenient for us.

I enjoy the frozen custard at Nielsen's, but was unable to do so when we visited because the St. George location only accepts cash or local checks. I rarely use cash or checks for purchases, so naturally I didn't have either on me (after standing in line behind a very slow group of people). Needless to say, this was a... More

Their concrete is legendary in SLC. We've been stopping by the St. George location for years. The last few times, the place was filthy and smelled like milk which had gone off.

Wish I had eaten my dessert before dinner. The cement mixes looked awesome, as did the sundaes. All I could manage was a small cup of Chocolate custard, and it was plenty. The creamiest ever. Be prepared for a long line, but the servers are quite quick at getting all the orders out. If I could have flown home with... More

I'd never had frozen custard before. We went to Nielsen's on the way to Grand Canyon North Rim, and then again on the way back. Rich, many different flavors and toppings. If you want a quiet place, this is not it--the concrete machine is constantly going. I'm hooked!

My wife and I took a few minutes break from our drive on I-15 to get a refreshing custard at Nielson's. Well worth the detour. Amazing, freshly made custard which is much creamier than ice cream. Fast, friendly service. Wasn't much of a wait, and definitely worth it.

We tried the Oreo custard and it did not disappoint! Be prepared for a long line and cash/checks only!

The hot spot in St George- especially if you like custard! Lots of people but the line goes pretty fast. The hot fudge sundae was incredible! Kids had the concretes- huge servings- great prices.

Creamy and delicious custard. The wait in line was swift with two registers rolling through a packed shop. Outside people are enjoying their cones, concretes and hanging out. I'll ignore the snafu and extremely long wait for our order... I don't think that's typical. Yummy!
