If you're in Milwaukee, this is a must! The custard was delicious and came out seconds after ordering. It's been around for a long time for a good reason.

When we visit our family in Milwaukee Leon's is a must visit location everyday! My husband remembers when he was a child how he would walk across the fields (that is now all shopping centers) to get to Leon's for his ice cream cone. So Leon's frozen custard is like one of the family to us. They have the most... More

Leon's serves wonderful, "old-fashion style" frozen custard; it's absolutely delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the lines move quickly. Try a scoop without all of the interfering toppings and enjoy!

Recent trip to MKE to renew some old memories. Born and raised in WI many moons ago. Leon's was our first stop after landing at Billy Mitchell. The building has not changed, the prices are a little higher but the custard is still the best I have EVER tasted. Go for the Butter Pecan if it is available. There is... More

Don't come to Leon's for fine dining folks but if you are looking for some of the best frozen custard in the US, this is the spot. We have sampled frozen custard all over the country and Leon's is our #1 spot.

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.
