Leon's is such a retro styled little place. The custard was very very good. I had the butter pecan and Leon's did not skimp on the pecans! Will def add Leon's to our place to visit when we are in town for now on.

Custard in Milwaukee is outstanding and Leon makes it memorable. Flavors change often and are interesting. A very limited menu and well trained staff makes this very casual spot functional efficiently. Not everything is what you expect but that only adds to the experience. e.g. a hamburger (spanish style) is a loose meat, lightly spiced creation on a bun. Prices... More

A friend suggested we try the hotdogs here. They were terrible! The frozen custard was good. Just a walk up window with no tables or chairs. We ate in the back of our car like everyone else. Good atmosphere.

This is not just the best frozen custard in town, it's the best I've ever had. This isn't really a sit down restaurant. It's more of an old ice cream and burger place to eat outside.

This is the last standing real Custard Drive In. Back in the day when I was a kid, they had car hop's on rollers skate's. Playing the golden oldies and listing to Wolf man Jack. What a great time to be alive. It is still a great place to visit. If in Milwaukee you must stop in for a Sunday.

Went quite a bit out of our way through construction to try the frozen custard here. No argument, it was good, but not significantly better than others we've had. Considering the limited amount of flavors I'd give it an overall B. If you're in the area, sure stop by, but I wouldn't go outta my way for it.

Great for custard lovers. Very busy, nothing fancy, just delicious. We stayed downtown and has to drive a bit on the road under construction.

Amazing custard. The place is super busy during the summer. Yet the wait is worth it. A true Milwaukee landmark. I have never had a bad experience there. It is a go to place when you are looking for great custard.

You come to Milwaukee you just must stop at Leons custard. This is another institution of Milwaukee that has real creamy custard and they also have a loose meat sandwich that is out of this world.
