Rumored to be the inspiration for Arnies in the TV show happy days, this is the best place in no walkie for custard. There are other great places for custard in this area, but this is the place.

there is a difference. This place is the real deal. custard like nowhere else. I have had custard all across the county. Many are good, but none parallel this place. My going to lots of custard places is due to my wife's passion, i am not generally a big fan and don't see much difference between custard and soft serve... More

Cute old school drive in but without car-hop service. Friday night in September was busy but the move quickly. A little pricey for a Sundae at $5.55 but it was tasty!

Leon's is a staple among locals. I have lived in Milwaukee for nine years and had all the different custards in town. You cannot beat a Leon's double dip vanilla.

I only get to have Leon's Frozen Custard once every five years and it is one of the first things I get when I visit Milwaukee and the first thing I miss when I am not in Milwaukee. I don't know what it is, but there is no other or better tasting custard on the planet.

We went on Labor Day in the afternoon for custard It was my husband, our daughter who lives in Milwaukee and myself. My daughter brought me to Leon's once before and I thought it was the best custard. This in itself says something because I grew up 7 miles from the original Culver's and Leon's beat's Culver's.

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!
