Nielsen's is busy--majorly busy--and for very good reason. Theirs is probably the most creamy, rich, and tasty frozen custard I've ever eaten. I got the chocolate malt and my partner got chocolate peanut cluster; both were UH-MAY-ZING. Service was reasonably efficient and certainly friendly. My...only reason for not giving this place 5 stars is that they are not handling customer COVID safety properly. There needs to be a better, safer system for ordering food, picking up food, and then for those choosing to eat it on-site, to do so properly socially distanced from others. As it is currently laid out, everyone must stand exceedingly close and walk close by way too many people for proper safety.More

I didn't grow up eating custard, so I'm always intrigued by it. This place is really delicious and the servings are large. It is totally worth the wait.

This place is sinful...in a good way. No matter when you go, it is worth the wait. Staff - friendly and fast Custard Concrete Ice cream - second best in the USA (Branson has Andy’s frozen custard...the best). Great favor choices and good pricing

The only downside to this place is they don't take credit or debit cards and there always seem to be more customers than places to sit (a testament to how good it really is).

Really friendly servers but the ice cream has no flavor aside from sugar. I guess if it’s hot out people just want something cold.

This frozen custard iconic restaurant on the main drag of St. George Blvd has been serving up great ice cream treats as long as I can remember. We got lucky this trip and they were open around the Christmas holiday in the evening. There's always...a waiting line for the BEST frozen custard you will find anywhere. Yes, frozen yogurt is good, but nobody can beat the great homemade taste of Neilsen's. The interior and exterior of the restaurant is clean as a pin and the service is excellent.More

Went here because we were travelling with some American cousins who always stop here--huge choice of fillings so something for everyone--huge sizes--I only ate half of mine!

By far the best frozen custard around. Would recommend it to all. Fast and efficient service and good customer relations.
