Leon's is a lifelong family favorite. Old fashioned drive in atmosphere and best custard I have ever eaten. Not a bunch a fancy flavors, just great tasting vanilla, chocolate and butter pecan. I get the hot fudge sundaes everymile because it is that good! Lines are usually long in the summertime but move quickly and definitely worth the short wait.

Always have to stop at Leon's!! Have tried many other frozen custard places but Leon's is my favorite!! Try the Hot Fudge sundae with Pecans with Butter Pecan custard instead of Vanilla - perfect combination of sweet & salty!! The pecans are toasted - crispy not soggy!! On busy evenings there can be a line - but it moves fast... More

After hearing so much about this Milwaukee landmark I could not wait to try it. Leon's lives up to its reputation. The Butter Pecan was sooooo buttery and chock full of fresh pecans. The Cinnamon was a wonderful new flavor I have never had before in all my years and was exceptionally tasty. High recommend.

Milwaukee is known for its frozen custard places and this is one of them. This is a walk up place, and they have four flavors. Not a lot of frills to this place, but the frozen custard was delicious.

Milwaukee's unique food is its frozen custard and Leon's is the very best. It is crowded even on the coldest days of the year. Very popular and you can even purchase custard to take home to enjoy or for a party. My favorite: vanilla on top of any warm pie--or butter pecan! It is not a sit-down restaurant--just an outdoor...

This is easy! If you have not heard of Leone or haven't had their frozen custard you haven't had frozen custard yet! Best claustrophobia chocolate and vanilla! Superb!

If you enjoy good tasting creamy custard, "Deese ist da place". It seems like it's been around forever and for good reason. But unfortunately I've moved further away so I don't get the chance to get to the South side of Milwaukee that often. But if I'm in the area I try to stop in..

Leon's has been around since we were younger. They have the Best Custard around. If your in the area please stop and have some custard. I love their chocolate and their Strawberry Sundaes.
