It is not really ice cream, it is frozen custard. But it is the yummiest I have ever tasted. I will drive hours for it. Their french fries are also delicious. I like their turkey and avocado sandwich. However, it is true that it is kind of a broken down old place with amateur help and not real tidy. I don't care. I would eat that frozen custard just about anywhere, anytime.

I just don't get it. So many people are enamored with this place. WHY?!? They must have selective vision.
#1. The place is FILTHY! I guess the owners figure that as long as business is good they don't have to worry about cleanliness, basic hygiene and maintenance. As long as people just keep coming and paying, they certainly have no motivation to make improvements. I'm appalled by the conditions at this place. They would not pass a surprise health inspection. I don't care how good the food tastes, if the place is a health hazard people ought to protest! Take a look at the kitchen floor the next time you order. Watch how the teenagers use and reuse the same rags to wipe down floor spills and wipe off table tops. Notice how your shoes stick when you try to walk from the door to the counter...
#2. Traffic Jams, dangerous parking lot, people risking their lives by parking across the busy street and jaywalking on a dangerous hill...
#3. Cost - It's much too pricey for what you get!
#4. Wait Time - LONG. Especially on a weekend.
Seriously? Why on earth waste your time and money and risk your health for this junky junk food joint? I've noticed people in Bountiful are creatures of habit. They become loyal to a fault to certain businesses, despite it being a dive. They are also desperate for a place to hangout after a big late-night event, and they like to go out and celebrate. So far Neilsen's seems to have a monopoly. Personally, I'm not this desperate. We won't be going back.

Nielsens is known for their frozen custard, which is delicious, but if you are looking for a sandwich, Nielsens is my favorite in Davis County. They sell Grinder's in several varieties- turkey avocado, ham and swiss, roast beef, all served on a hoagie style bun and with their own pepper relish. The fries are not my favorite, if you are looking for fried, the onion rings are a better option, and the fry sauce, make sure to get some.

I've traveled near and far, but Nielsen's has the creamiest, best-tasting frozen custard in the country.
