Welcome to a 1950s frozen custard stand. No glitz, just great custard and amazing burgers. Don't waste your time by going to one of the chain fast food restaurants, Hefner's is the real thing. The "flavors of the day" are outstanding because Hefner's doesn't skimp on the ingredients.

The burgers are very good they have GREAT custard and there is a different flavor every day of the month. Outdoor live entertainment in the summer a place to go eat listen to music and relax.

I used to live in Cedarburg and make a point to stop here everytime we visit now. They cheese curds still squeak when you eat them. The burgers taste like butter burgers. They also have great custard!

If you travel to Cedarburg you have to stop in and get a treat here. I ordered a fantastic malt. They served it with a cherry on top, but not the typical maraschino. This was a dark sweet cherry that had been candied. It added a very unique twist to the malt.

Stopped here for Saturday afternoon to support a local burger joint. We walked in, and it smelled musty. I was like whoa! We're going to have to dine outside if I'm going to try and enjoy my food. The staff was very nice, The burgers were OK, and they didn't know how to cut a grilled cheese sandwich in half... More

You may think vanilla is bland. Whenever someone from out of town visits, I bring them here and tell them, "get the vanilla". When visitors try it they say, "you were right....this is the best custard I've ever had". Seriously, I don't get anything else here, just get the vanilla.

We have been making Hefner's Custard a weekly stop for quite awhile now. They have been in business for many years, always providing some of the best custard in the area at a reasonable price. My Sweetie and I usually stop for a cone after our Friday Night Fish Fry for dessert. We have never had a bad flavor. This... More

My husband had the fish fry last Friday and he was very satisfied with the amount of fish. I Loved my burger with cheese and fried onions.

It doesn't help that we only live a block from here....everything is SUPER delicious and very reasonably priced. They have some great "Flavor of the Day" varieties and their menu has great staples (huge burgers, fish sandwiches, fried cheese curds, etc.), but also has some VERY good seasonal items - try the seafood wrap and funnel fries!!! While it's fantastic... More
