“best custard in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

You come to Milwaukee you just must stop at Leons custard. This is another institution of Milwaukee that has real creamy custard and they also have a loose meat sandwich that is out of this world.

“Words can't describe! !”

By far the best custard/ice cream I have ever had. Chocolate cones are awesome, as well as the malts. But you gotta have a turtle sundae. Tons of pecans, hot fudge, caramel and cherries. I go there every time we visit Milwaukee. Actually multiple times, like 3 out of the 4 days we were there. Not a lot of bells and whistles on the menu, but what they do have is wonderful. I don't think the workers are rude, just very fast and efficient. So your wait time is minimal.

“Best ice cream”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

Really good ice cream. Best i ever had. Only thing is they workers are rude. They not friendly at all. If I'm a be spending my dollars you need to be a little nice. It really won't stop me from goin back tho cuz they ice cream is that good. It's a cool place to take my kids cuz it's like a landmark. It's known all over as the best place for ice cream cuz it is. Goodness wise NOT service wise. At least the girl who helped had a really bad attitude. Hopefully they other employees act a little nicer. But best ice cream ever. Floats are really good too.

“Classic and great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

So, we had root beer floats, and they were simply awesome. I've never tasted anything quite as smooth and rich as the vanilla frozen custard.
