I had a butterscotch shake that was delicious! $4. They only accept cash. Nice stop for a snack. I would go back.

Very good frozen custard and perfect for the kids. Two drawbacks --limited selection of flavors on some days and when the place is busy parking is a challenge. Otherwise Leon's is a good choice for a cone or milkshake. On a busy Saturday afternoon, service...More

I have been going here for 50+ years and the quality is always excellent. My favorite is the hot fudge sundae with pecans. Its so big I eat it in place of a meal.

Normal food. I go for the nostalgia. Really good custard! It's a place I visit when I am in the old neighborhood or someone at St Luke's. Burgers and fries good and inexpensive. No seating per se. It's a drive in with window service only,...More
