Oscar's custard is flavorful and smooth. I go to one of the other chain restaurants nearby and the custard is often lumpy or full of ice crystals. I go to another place that is noted for their custard and it is so rich that my stomach has problems dealing with it. Oscar's is just right. Also, they have very good... More

The custard was delicious and the burgers tasted like they were home grilled. Service was excellent and will come again

If it is isn't enough that they have a full menu of fountain items such as shakes and sundaes and food items that include the classics such as grilled cheese and onion rings, they have a flavor of the day, along with a sandwich of the month and sundae of month, both of which usually have some tie in to...

When you catch this restaurant on a good day or night, it's a sure hit. Unfortunately our last visit was a miss. And by a mile. Stopping in after some shopping in the area, my wife and I ordered a 1/4-lb Oscar Burger ($2.14) and a 1/4-lb Mushroom and Swiss Burger ($2.94), each with an order of Cheddar Cheese Fries... More

Although the custard is comparable to Kopp's, the food and service are worse at Oscar's. Service here is unprofessional compared to Kopp's. We had the sloppy joe's and philly cheese steak. The slopy joe was OK but not the steak sandwhich. The cost is average. The only advantage that Oscar's has over Kopp's is the indoor seating. Most Kopp's locations... More

Recently had the flavor of the day "Mudpie" It was slightly mocha flavored with chocolate chips and hot fudge. The total price was under $5 for two dishes. Oscar's is a toss up between Kopp's depending what flavor of the day you prefer.

We went here to try the custard and also had a meal. Some had the burgers, I had a chicken salad. They forgot to add the chicken, so I had to go back and get some on it. It was okay. I think the burgers we okay for the others, but no one really said much about then other than... More

We ate at 4 Custards stands in town on this trip and Oscars had the best Flavors of the day we voted. They pack in the nuts or whatever the special is into the custard to give it great flavor in every bite.

Lots of fun treats to eat here. I personally like their grill items, like the BLT. We are usually very happy with their custard with the exception of their chocolate flavor. (Kopp's and Culver's does chocolate better.)

They have monthly calendars that show the custard flavor of each day, and every one sounds creative and tasty. As someone else said, the FOD can be runny, but it was still good. Reasonably priced, plenty of seating and also a drive-through. They were open after 10 p.m. on a cool, rainy early May day.
