This place has been a favorite of my parents when they were young and now myself! If you like ice cream, then you'll LOVE their custard! There's no better place to get some custard or food on a summer Wisconsin night while feeling like you've been transported back into the 1950's. I make sure that this is a stop when... More

I was in Milwaukee for the weekend and was happy to have the chance to treat myself to Leon's Custard. I am a huge fan of the butter pecan but it has been years since I have had it. I was pleased that it is as good as ever.

Very nice place to eat ice cream especially if you are with your family everyone should go there and try ice cream.

Leon's is definitely a must-stop place if you are in Milwaukee during the summer time. Wisconsin custard with a little feeling of going back in time with the untouched 1950's theme.

I especially love the Spanish hamburger sandwich. Looks like it right out of Happy Days. A must stop by.

There's always a line for Leon's frozen custard! Creamy and delicious. My favorite is the butter pecan! I think it's seasonal, but the cinnamon is also terrific (so is the chocolate).

When our daughter and her family visited our son-in-law's home town of Milwaukee they were introduced to Leon's. We tried the custard for the first time. It was so smooth and the taste was delicious. We went back after dinner and since the line was so long didn't wait. We sent some back to the Kidd and grandkids in California... More

Visited 8 pm on a Monday. Long wait. Other customers trying to skip line. Limited food menu. Hamburger was more like a sloppy joe. Small servings compared to other custard stands. Friendly staff.

Lines might be long when you arrive but they move quick and are well worth the short wait. Make sure you bring cash though as they do not accept plastic. You will not find any better custard in Milwaukee. Enjoy, you'll be back for sure!

Thank Kelly S
