My family and I are regulars here, whether to go out as a special treat or to bring as a gift when we are bringing something to a friend who has invited us over for dinner. While the decor is basic, the service is quick. It's usually run by high school students, who are uniformly polite, helpful, courteous, and a... More

The frozen custard served was excellent, if a bit pricey. I had the vanilla custard in a waffle cone. It was served cold, so it didn't start melting halfway through eating it. The portion was a little on the small side, but I'm still giving it 5 stars because it was so good!

Great, creamy custard in a town where it's hard to come by. But the portions just suck! Ridiculous what proprietors will do when there's no competition. Would love to say "this is the place" but not a good value for the money.

The space is great. The good is excellent. The custard machine is loud but it didn't distract from my enjoyment. The custard is to die for.

I found this place randomly when looking for ice cream shops in the area. I came for the frozen custard and stayed (and returned) for the sandwiches. The roasted turkey sandwich is my favorite! It's so fresh and tasty, and I'm not even a turkey fan. This darling place has that old-time soda shop feel. There's often easy parking on... More

I like to get the concretes, but some of the personnel do not mix them very well. It all depends on who makes yours as to how good it is mixed. My son goes to school with many of the workers and his always seems to be mixed better than mine. I would recommend it because it is good.

A friend introduced us to Neilsen's early this summer and we have been going ever since. The custard has no rival for smooth flavor. I have tried the vanilla, chocolate and lemon but my favorite flavor is Oreo. It's not cheap but its worth every cent!

What else is there to say? The best frozen custard I've ever had, and I grew up on the real Carvel in NY!

Pineapple and coconut custard concrete, Nuff said. Creamy, delicious and no skimping on the blended ingredients. An awesome dessert and a small is more than enough

A friend recommended we try Neilsen's Custard for a great milk shake. They have a lot of variety of desserts and sandwiches, etc. The location is a good one in the heart of upscale Vienna, Virginia and the service to your table is exceptional. What really blew me away was the great milkshake. One of the best I have had... More
