“best custard!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

You are missing a Milwaukee experience if you don't drive out to Leon's! Tastiest custard and old 1950's feel.

“Timeless Classic Custard Stand”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Leon's is a classic and a trip back in time with it's drive-in service and 40's style atmosphere. They serve a variety of items, all of which are worth the money and the drive. Get a sundae and a hot dog and just sit in your car with the windows down enjoying the sounds of summer and the bustling crowd looking to get their custard fix. Leon's is a must in my household and in the 27 years I've been going there it's been just as fantastic as the last time! Stop in and check out the nostalgia.

“Frozen in time.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

It was nice to see a nostalgic place. In NYC almost all these places are gone. The frozen custard was great as was the vanilla malt. The only disappointment was the "spanish burger" It didn't resemble a burger except for the bun, nor did it seem to have any authentic spanish flavor to it. It is definitely worth a stop for custard and to take a few photos of a nostalgic era.

“A Trip Back in Time”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Leon's is a trip back to the 1940's. Frozen custard was excellent! They have a limited number of other products- hot dogs and the like. All at prices I haven't seen in many a year!

“Classic walk up custard hang out. Definitely recommend! (And not sure why TripAdvisor lists $20 as average price... Not the case”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Sure, a sundae will cost you $4-6 but its worth it! Very comparable prices to similar places and this one has the nostalgic feel and won't disappoint. No indoor seating but there's something about ordering at the walk up and eating outside or in your car. Definitely stop here if you're visiting Mikwaukee and have a sweet tooth.

Side note - they're a cash only place so be prepared.
